    Cool V25.2

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have been given OBGYN to code and I have an issue with V25.2. Why would this be used when the cc is to discuss impending sterilization. I interpert this as being done in the the the hospital. Am I missing something? Thanks in advance.

    Default v25.2

    I use v25.2 only as dx for the surgery. I use v25.09 when the patient comes in the discuss surgery.
