Does anyone know the correct dx code to use for a Hepatitis B Titer? The patient has had the Hepatitis B vaccines and the doctor has ordered a titer. I billed it with V77.99. It denied.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Hello,
For vaccination given for hepatitis B -90731, 90636-V05.3
But, a titre has been ordered- it should only be an office visit accompanied by the above codes.So, it should be,
99213-25- probably at this level of decision making-a viral fever or chills from the medical record as Dx should be appropriate for the E/M;
Followed by,
90636-Check-mostly it is this code that comes with hepatitis vaccine-which is a combination of both A and B-V05.3 given as Dx.

Thanks for your reply. I understand the vaccine dx code
V05.3 but would you use that code also for the titer if you are checking for immunity?

Thanks

Antibody Testing

Did anyone come up with a covered code for this. I tried the V05.3 originally but the insurance company didnt like it. :(

How would you DX this?

A patient presents for swelling, tenderness and erythema at the upper extremity injection site following Hepatitis B vaccination. The patient has a localized infection. What ICD-9-CM code should be reported?
