SuperCoder Answered Tue 28th of January, 2020 02:54:46 AM

Hello Apurva,

Thank you for your question.

 

More appropriate code for the above documentation will be Z71.84 (Encounter for health counseling related to travel).

 

Note: This is a new code for 2020 ICD-10-CM code that became effective on October 1, 2019. This code specifies the encounter for health risk and safety counseling for (international) travel.

 

Hope that helps!

Thanks
