Here may be the key to the tip you need in determining whether you want to use V76.51 as primary and V12.72 as secondary. History (of) Guidelines also details these terms. Personal history codes explain a patient's past medical condition THAT no longer exists and is not receiving treatment, but that has the potential for recurrence. So I would only use the V76.51 on the claim form so that there isn't any problem with the payor's interpretation and if in doubt ask the payor if the claim would be rejected with the V76.51 as primary and V12.72 as secondary.
