Thread: Dx V code question.

    Default Dx V code question.

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is there a V code that can be used for a post-op visit after pt has laminectomy? V code V45.89 is listed as "other postprocedural status-other", but I'm not sure if that is applicable. Thanks.

    Default V67.09

    You could also use V67.09 Follow-up examination, following other surgery.
