    Default Office visit code

    AAPC: Back to School
    After a patient has come in and has finished up a series of knee injections and then comes back in a few weeks for just the check up, what ICD-9 code would be appropriate to use? The code that was used for the injections?

    Thanks for any input.

    Default office visit

    What kind of medication and injection was it? Generally I use the same ICD-9 code that was used for the injections because the patient still has the same issue/problem-injections only relieve the symptoms and typically buy the patient time if they are trying to avoid surgery. Hope this helps!
