We use ICD code 789.9 "Umbilical Cord Disorder" and CPT code 17250 for
cauterization. Some companies pay, some don't, stating that it's "part of
the primary procedure".

diagnosis code

Can someone help me find the code for accidental needlestick
(non-occupational)? I did find an E code (E920 accident caused by cutting
and piercing instruments or objects), but don't know if that is correct.

Thanks

I would think the needlestick would be an E code...diagnosis something like
injury..wound..? We use open wound for eg for dog bites along w/ the E code.
This might be injury to the area.

Is there something about E codes being rejected on electronic claims? I
realize the coding and submission are two different areas and we can not
adjust one to work with the other but knowledge is power.

The Ecode can ONLY be the last diagnosis and I have used it without any
problems. PCC ECS: is this true?

Hi PartnerTalkers,

WebMD Envoy's claim specifications state:

The first character of PRIMARY DIAGNOSIS CODE may _not_ contain a
value of E.

We (PCC) configure the tagsplit (preptags) program default to redirect
electronic claims bound for WebMD Envoy and posted with `E' diagnoses for
paper claim submission through the HCFA program.

Justin,
Can the first character of the SECONDARY DIAGNOSIS CODE contain a value of
E?

The WebMD Envoy specifications implicitly state that any but the
primary diagnosis code may indeed contain a value of `E'; the emphasis
(i.e., capitalization) in the citation below is WebMD's.
