    We have a patient that came in to f/u with her pcp after a visit to er for anaphylaxis with no know trigger. Our doctor just checked her over and discussed the incident and gave her an epipen. Anyone have any suggestions as to dx for this visit?? Thanks

    Well the follow up was for anaphylactic reaction with no known cause so it would appear that 995.0 is the correct code. Usually you would assign an E code to identify the cause, but since they don't know the cause you can't add that on.
