re: v codes

You need to know the four primary circumstances for the se of V codes, ie; currently not sick encounters a health service-(donor, shots, mental); known disease or injury receives services specific treatment for their injury/disease (chemo,) a circumstance/problem is present and influences a patients health but is not current (used as supplement or secondary code-history) and birt status and outcome of delivery of newborn) Observations, evaluations etc. The key is to read and re read your study chapters.

re: v codes

The answer to your questions can be found at the beginning of the ICD-9 book as well as on line. It just takes some reading.

re: v codes

Just to clarify, you will not find ANY "procedures" in the "V" section, these are diagnosis codes. Perhaps you misspoke, but if you are looking for Volume 3 ICD Procedures, that is a different section of the book, and should have an index to help you look.
