Thread: history of MVA

    Default history of MVA

    How do I code history of MVA for a office visit. Do I use observation code V71.4?

    Was it a recent MVA and they are having injury, pain or other signs/symptoms? If so code those and add the MVA E-code. Did they hit their head? Was it a remote history? Did the MVA have anything to do with this visit? Having more specific info would help

    Default history of MVA

    Maybe a late effect....were they injured? If so, may code - V15.59. Do not code Observation unless they came in with nothing found.
