Code the "gravely disabled" status as V68.2, a request for expert advice. Insurance company guidelines vary. Some insurance companies may prefer the coder to submit a code V68.9 for unspecified administrative purposes. Choose the ICD-9 code most accepted by the patient's insurance company to show the medical necessity for the patient's admission to the mental facility for observation.
