    Default tubal ligation consult icd 9

    AAPC: Back to School

    Smile dx for tubal ligation


    if you read the description under code V25.2 ( Sterilzation ) it says admission for interruption of fallopian tubes or vas deferens & V-code can be used as primary dx for consultation.

    check if this info can help you...

    If the patient was seen for the consult only I would use v25.09. I would only use v25.2 if the procedure actually took place.
