    I found V65.49 (other specified counseling) - its under counseling- with no complaint or sickness. It isn't marked as primary or secondary dx only in the ICD-9 book. Is there an underlying illness? If there is maybe you could use
    V66.7 encounter for palliative care? Thats an interesting situation.
