Can V codes be used as a primary diagnosis? Yes, unless otherwise specified in the code descriptor, V codes may be used as the primary diagnosis.
V Codes were part of the ICD-09 system and were used to describe reasons other than a disease or injury that resulted in an encounter with a healthcare professional. Although some healthcare providers do still include these codes on claims, they are no longer billable and the correct ICD-10 code should be used instead.
Z codes may be used as either a first-listed (principal diagnosis code in the inpatient setting) or secondary code, depending on the circumstances of the encounter. Certain Z codes may only be used as first-listed or principal diagnosis.
The Z codes serve as a replacement for V codes in the ICD-10 and are 3-6 characters long. In specific situations such as administrative examinations and aftercare, you can bill them as first-listed codes. You can also use them as secondary codes.

ICD-9-CM codes are 3 – 5 digit numeric and alphanumeric codes. These codes are used to describe diseases, conditions, symptoms, and other reasons for seeking healthcare services. Some codes are modified for special use in the DoD. The first three digits usually represent a single disease entity, or a group of similar or closely related conditions. The fourth digit subcategory provides more specificity or information regarding the etiology, site, or manifestation. In some cases, fourth-digit subcategories have been expanded to the fifth-digit level to provide even greater specificity.
E codes describe the circumstances that caused an injury, not the nature of the injury, and therefore, are not used as a principal diagnosis. E-codes are all ICD-9-CM diagnosis codes that begin with the letter E.
ICD-9-CM codes beginning with the letter “V” are used when the patient seeks health care for reasons other than illness or injury. For example, well baby exam or a physical are reasons to contact health services without being “sick.” See para 2.2.7 in this chapter for more guidance.
