The subsequent encounter for drowning is actually the "follow-up" visit. Always normal any time you're seen for ER type incidents.

The subsequent encounter is after you have been plucked from the sea by the crew and they determine you are still an idiot and they throw you back in

drowned, drown·ing, drowns
v.tr.
1. To kill by submerging and suffocating in water or another liquid.

How does one have a follow up visit to drowning? Should my survivors keep me on ice until the follow-up visit, or do we proceed with the funeral and dig me up the day before my appointment. God knows I have to get this right, or my insurance isn't going to pay.

And if I drown by inhaling spray in a hurricane, that is I have been "immersed" rather than "submersed", is there a differnet code for that?!?! ;-)

Note that it describes DROWNING: only the mortician needs a "follow up" with you at that point.

Maybe the subsequent encounter is the autopsy?

ER doc: "He's dead."

ME: "Yep, he's dead."

"Codified" means you end up surrounded by cod after your boat accident.
