    Hey,

    V15.59 is correct one. But look, if in your report Headache is mentioned then u may code like post traumatic headache 339.2* (And with this there is no need to code Hx of head injury). Also please refer tabular list to code 339.2*

    Hope this helps!

    If this is documented as a post trauma headache then you also need a late effect code from category 905-909.

    Hi Debra,

    So I underlined the sentence as "also please refer tabular list to code 339.2*" in my previous post. In tabular list they mentioned about late effects.
