    Medical Coding Books
    One of our specialists is seeing a 6 month old baby in the office for the reason of: baby was born to a drug addicted mother. The baby is perfectly fine and normal, no physical or developmental problems have been identified. What ICD-9 code can I use for this visit?

    Default V19.8 or V15.89
    How about
    V19.8 - Family history of "other condition"
    V15.89 - Other specified personal history presenting hazards to health, "other"

    I wouldn't recommend using V15.89, since the child is healthy. V19.8 seem like a more appropriate code to validate the encounter.
