Thread: DX code for failed vasectomy

    Default DX code for failed vasectomy

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a pt who had a repeat vasectomy due to sperm counts still showing sperm. Would I list diag code as 998.89 and V25.2 ?
    Thank you

    That is the only thing I can find. I have even looked on Google to see if there was another way to code it and I didn't find anything else. I hope this helps.
