Thread: Help for new coder!

    Default Help for new coder!

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am interning at a hospital and am looking for some input to the long-term drug use V codes. I have little medical background and want to put together a list of commonly named drugs for each code so I can learn what drug fits with each code. The codes I keep questioning are V58.61, V58.63, V58.64, V58.65 and V58.69. I want to put together a cheat sheet listing common names of anticoagulants, antiplatelets/antithrombotics, steriods, and high risk drugs so I can become familar with these. Can those of you who having been coding for a while throw out some names for me?

    Here are a few that come up commonly:
    V58.61 - Warfarin, Coumadin
    V58.67 -Insulin
    V58.63 Plavix
    V58.66 Aspirin
    V58.68 Actonel, Fosamax, Boniva, Reclast
    V58.65 prednisone, methylprednisone

    I would start a list and just add to it to update every so often. Hope this helps.
