As Rhonda Buckholtz, AAPC Vice President of Strategic Development, explains, “When the doctor sees the patient and develops his plan of care—that is active treatment. When the patient is following the plan—that is subsequent.
D (subsequent encounter) describes any encounter after the active phase of treatment, when the patient is receiving routine care for the injury during the period of healing or recovery. S (sequela) indicates a complication or condition that arises as a direct result of an injury.

Also, I'd just add that a tick is an arthropod and not an insect, so an insect bite code it is technically not correct - if the provider is documenting treating a tick bite, I would use the 'other superficial bite' codes for this.
