Looking for diagnosis code for "intravenous access". Surgeon is doing central line placement and this is the only dx code.

there is no code for access. you have to code the dx for which you're placing the line, ie sepsis. Hope this helps.

Thank you. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing a v-code that I could use.
