    AAPC: Back to School
    I am trying to find a v-code that would let you know that the patient has a chest tube that we are taking care of. The closest thing I could find was V58.82 which states Fitting and adjustment of non-vascular catheter NEC. If anyone else has any suggestions I would love to hear them. I know there has to be something to show what we are addressing the chest tube during our visit.
