    V71 dx codes are first-listed only, and used only for patients where there is is no injury found, these are"observation and evailuation for suspected conditions not found.

    SO your saying they have to be primary code? If the doctor does find injury so do we still use V71.4 As primary and injury as secondary and use E code also?

    Thanks

    If symptoms are found or definitive dx of injury then it negates the use of the V71 code. You would use the injury code plus the E-code only.
