What about V07.4?

Hormone replacement therapy

The term “postmenopausal” was moved to a parenthetical note for code V07.4, to denote that this code should be reported anytime a woman is placed on estrogen replacement therapy. ICD-9 also has clarified that it is not appropriate to use V58.69 (long-term [current] use of other high-risk medications) for patients on hormone replacement therapy—instead, select code V07.4.

I provided the 2nd link since I don't have an ICD-9 book ( I'm at home)

Your thoughts?
