Generally, you shouldn't use E codes unless you have an 800 or 900 dx code. You can't code it as an injury unless the phy documents that it's an injury. If he documents that the pain is due to the injury, then code the 959.7 knee injury, then the E-Codes. I wouldn't code the knee pain as that is part of the injury code. You are right, there are some insurance companies that have an accident rider and will pay 100% for an injury, but they want an 800 or 900 diagnosis code.
