    AAPC: Back to School
    If you have a physical therapy order stating post rotator cuff repair. How would you code the claim? Would you use 840.4 and a afterecare code? Or just use V58.78? Thanks!

    If this is an outpatient use:

    V57.1 along with if this is from an injury use the residuals followed by the late effect code.
