Patient is being seen in the radiation oncology clinic for adjuvant therapy after having mastectomy of the right breast with no evidence of disease. What is/are the appropriate diagnosis code/s?

For encounter of radiation therapy, we must bill V58.0 as a primary code. And as mentioned in query that there is no evidence of disease, I would suggest to bill V10.3 as secondary to show personal history of neoplasm malignant of breast.

Thank you. I forgot to mention that I need these as ICD10 codes. Please also indicate primary Dx

Yes sure, you can bill Z51.0 instead of V58.0 as primary and Z85.3 as secondary instead of V10.3
