    Question Which Diagnosis should I use for a surgery follow up?

    AAPC: Back to School
    a child had a tonsillectomy but I'm unsure if the diagnosis should be V67.00, Follow up surgery, Unspecified. or V67.09 Follow up to other surgery.

    Default You know what the surgery is - it is NOT unspecifiec

    Well, the surgery IS specified. You know what it was but it's not separately listed.
