Since she is referring to a Medicaid patient, she'll need to use the diagnosis code that her local Medicaid allows.

Correct...V25.49 was filed and denied. My recommendation was to check with her Medicaid carrier since our Medicaid carrier requires the family planning codes for depo...V25.0-V25.09 (which ever is applicable). As you know, Medicaid doesn't follow traditional guidelines (for the most part)

Hi. I code OB Antepartum for Medicaid patients. I agree with the Initial or the Subsequent contraception code under V25.02 or V25.49 as the primary code for the depo injection. I believe that Medicaid pays for the shot only if that was what she was there for. The family planning advice could/would be secondary under a family planning encounter for pregnancy test or advice for the contraception, if not provided at the visit.

Default Injecton

We have found that Medicaid requires the NDC number of the drug to be listed on the claim for any drug that is injected. We use 96372 with v25.49 and J1055 with the ndc number and they are getting paid.

we've always used V25.8 for depo shots for birth control and all have gotten paid by all carriers.

This thread is probably old and forgotten, but I wanted to add a note about EncoderPro.

This is what it says about V25.49: Unacceptable Principal Dx (for Inpatient Services)

Since it's not an inpatient service, it shouldn't affect reimbursement.

I use v25.02 for initiation of other contaceptive measures

The diagnosis code our office uses is V25.40. This never gets denied and we always are paid. You must have the NDC number and enter the number of units given to get the claim paid.

Default depo provera

What code should we use for the medication? Since J1055 has been deleted?
