- 12. V Codes Can you help us with V-codes – in particular knowing WHEN we would need to add one. For example if we are reading a test question that we need to code the DX and TX how would we know we also need to assign a V-code. E-codes just pop out at you……PT fell at home and broke an arm. Code the break and the E-code. But V-codes are much harder to know just by reading a question that we need to code one. Thanks! Linda ANSWER

- 15. Bill First – ICD SequencingIs there a rule of thumb to which code should be billedfirst if the ICD-9 does not state otherwise? For example250.40 and 585.3, I understand that, but maybe a goodexample might be dehydration due to flu. What is the ruleto “bill first”. My thinking is, you would have the flu beforethe dehydration, but then my over thinking kicks in andthinks that you wouldnt maybe have an office visit if youwerent dehydrated. Thank you for yourhelp on this biggie. ANSWER

- 16. Omit Code Can you please explain the USE of “Omit Code” in the ICD-9?? I just dont get it! If we are not to use this code then why have it in the book?!?!?! This is what I am thinking it means – can you confirm or tell me what it does in fact mean? Example in volume 3 ICD-9 Hospital procedures 39.3 Suture of a vessel Then under that it has an “Excludes note” and under that “Omit Code” and it lists other codes like 39.52 49.95 57.93 39.41 21.00 – 21.09 60.94 28.7 = does it mean that if I am coding anything from this list that I should not code anything in the 39.3 category as well?
