    Question V25.5 vs V25.09

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone know if counseling is included in the diagnosis V25.5=Insertion of implantable subdermal contraceptive or would dx V25.09=Other general counseling and advice also need to be used?
    Thanks, Ronnie

    Use v25.5-the counseling is included in the insertion fee.
