Question Dx 627.2(Symptomatic menopausal or female climacteric states)

2010 claim
Does anyone know why Dx 627.2 is being denied as inconsistent with E/M 99396?

Thanks in advance

You are billing a physical, you should be using V70.0. The 627.2 is a diagnosis that you would bill with an office visit not a physical code.
