    Default Near Drowning

    AAPC: Back to School
    Should we use 994.1 for history of near drowning? Pt has multiple problems because of this, should I only be coding the symptoms

    Would the late effect DX codes apply to your situation?

    Can you give some additional info on how long ago was the near-drowning, what are these current symptoms/problems etc
