    Cool "E" codes on first claim submission only ??

    AAPC: Back to School
    Need your help out there and this may be a needle in a haystack. I think that I remember reading somewhere that the accident "E" codes should be placed on the claim with the intial treatment only. If this is true, does anyone know where to find it? Thanks for your input!!

    Yes, you can find the answer in the last place that you would think to look, the official coding guidelines in the ICD9CM! I hope this helps.
