    Default Wound check

    AAPC: Back to School
    What would the dx be for a patient that came in to er for a wound check ? They did not change the dressing. The admitting is postop bleeding. The final dx statement says wound check.

    I use V67.9, unless they prescribe meds, then I would use the diagnosis code. We also don't charge for Facility or Physician level for Wound Recheck.
