dx code V20.2

  1. Question dx code V20.2
    Medical Coding Books
    I have worked denials in our office and alot of the insurance companies deny this code once the patient is age 18. If an 18 year old comes into the office and we do a well child on them should we use the V70.0? Thank you

    Yes V70.0 is for 18-39 years of age.
