    Question History of Fever?

    AAPC: Back to School
    We have a child that was seen for a f/u because of a fever. How do I code History of Fever? Thanks!

    I would personally just use 780.60- fever- as the diagnosis.

    780.60 for fever and then V67.9 for F/U exam

    that is what I would do

    I would not code the fever since the patient no longer has it, code the followup only. We cannot code what is not there or present at the time of the encounter.
