Hi. I use to process claims and also file claims on provider side. You can use an E code to tell indicate what accident etc as to why they have the wound but that is it. It really does not affect the claim payment if an E code is on the claim or not. Insurance companies are most likely just wanting to know what happened to get the wound so they can see if someone else should be paying for that service. I hope that helps you some.
