When billing for patients with Type 2 Diabetes we need to add on the V58.67 as a secondary dx to specify that the patient is insulin dependent. If all patients with Type 1 Diabetes are insulin dependent, then do we still need to add on the V58.67 to specify insulin dependence?

Yes you still need to add the dx

thanks, I seem to be getting mixed answers to this question. Do you code for patients with Type I Diabetes? Have you ever had trouble getting reimbursed when using the V-code, have you ever had trouble getting reimbursed when billing without the V-code?
