    Default ICD-9 Code for RTW

    What is the correct ICD-9-CM code(s) to report for return to work visits? If the condition is resolved and the patient is released to return to work, do you just use a code from the V67 category for a follow-up exam? What if it is a return to work and a note is issued to the patient certifying that they are released to go back to work? Do you also report code V68.09 for the issue of medical certificates? I have been receiving some conflicting info. I have been told that a return to work exam should be coded as V68.01 for a disability exam. All opinions appreciated. Thanks.
