    Question Contraception Management DX Coding

    AAPC: Back to School
    What primary diagnosis should be used for an encounter that ONLY entails contraception management (which are now unacceptable primary DX codes)?

    Default Contraception Mngmnt DX coding

    Not sure why you are stating that a primary diagnosis code is unacceptable, but...can you use V25.40?

    or which ever of the V25.xx correctly represent the visit - I mean, it is was it is - if it's ONLY contraception management, then that's what it is. V25.09? or "survelliance of contraceptive care? V25.49? or as stated V25.40?.....
