Thread: E-code for twisting ankle

  1. #1

    Default E-code for twisting ankle

    AAPC: Back to School
    I need other opinions for E-code for twisting ankle but not fall.

    Thanks for any help.

    Unless you have some documentation that indicates the reason for the twisted ankle, I don't think you can use an e-code.

    Overexertion E codes would be another option I would suggest. Check out E927.0 - E927.9

    There is also E928.9, Unspecified accident. I know, I know, don't use unspecified! But if you need the E code and there is NO documentation....
