One of out doctors wants to bill for the management of the immunosuppressant after a heart transplant. I am not sure as to what DX code to use. I appreciate any feedback on this. Thanks.:confused:

Try V58.69. If your Dr is the transplant surgeon you will need to use mod 24 on these specific office visits.

First of all I want to thank you for your reply, I was going to use the V58.69 but that is a secondary code. Would I be able to use the complication of (996.83) code as the primary code?

I would use V07.2 followed by V42.1 (I don't think I would use the complication code unless the pt is having complications from the surgery).
