Thread: V58.69 - I am a Lab coder

    Default V58.69 - I am a Lab coder

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am a Lab coder and I was poking around my new ICD-9 2010 version and noticed that it now states that the V58.69 is a secondary code . Does anyone know where I can get info on that change. It is a large part of why we do some of the labs we do.

    Default v58.69

    This actually changed previously. You can use the V58.69, just add the V58.83 encounter for therapeutic drug monitoring first. There are other posts on here concerning this same issue. If you use the search feature at the top you should find some. Hope this helps!

    As a lab only coder this applies as well, right?
