V68.1 as first listed diagnosis

    Medical Coding Books
    Is anyone using v68.1, issue of repeat prescriptions, as a primary dx., in the absence of a chief complaint for patients who have no complaints?
    We have patients who present for medication refills only for their chronic conditions, ie.,DM,HTN,CAD,etc.

    All V68.x codes are designated first-listed only. If they are there only for a med refill, it is the appropriate dx code.
