treatment. The follow-up code is sequenced first, followed by the history code. A follow-up code may be used to explain multiple visits. Should a condition be found to have recurred on the follow-up visit, then the diagnosis code for the condition should be assigned in place of the follow-up code. The follow-up Z code categories: Z08 Encounter for follow-up examination after completed treatment for malignant neoplasm Z09 Encounter for follow-up examination after completed treatment for conditions other than malignant neoplasm Z39 Encounter for maternal postpartum care and examination 9) Donor Codes in category Z52, Donors of organs and tissues, are used for living individuals who are donating blood or other body tissue. These codes are only for individuals donating for others, not for self-donations. They are not used to identify cadaveric donations. 10)Counseling Counseling Z codes are used when a patient or family member receives assistance in the aftermath of an illness or injury, or when support is required in coping with family or social problems. They are not used in conjunction with a diagnosis code when the counseling component of care is considered integral to standard treatment. The counseling Z codes/categories: Z30.0- Encounter for general counseling and advice on contraception Z31.5 Encounter for genetic counseling Z31.6- Encounter for general counseling and advice on procreation Z32.2 Encounter for childbirth instruction Z32.3 Encounter for childcare instruction Z69 Encounter for mental health services for victim and perpetrator of abuse Z70 Counseling related to sexual attitude, behavior and orientation Z71 Persons encountering health services for other counseling and medical advice, not elsewhere classified Z76.81 Expectant mother prebirth pediatrician visit Follow-up for patient several months after completing a regime of IV antibiotics for recurrent pneumonia; lungs are clear and pneumonia is resolved Z09 Encounter for follow-up examination after completed treatment for conditions other than malignant neoplasm Z87.01 Personal history of pneumonia (recurrent) Explanation: Code Z09 identifies the follow-up visit as being unrelated to a malignant neoplasm, and code Z87 describes the condition that has now resolved.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
