We have been having issues with getting a drug called Zometa covered becuase of a coding issue. The issue is the code we are told to use for chemo induced bone loss is 773.09 which is the same code for Osteoporsis. Which is fine except for the patient's that don't have osteoporsis they have "chemo induced bone loss,"or what the Dr. would consider osteopenia 773.90 b/c they haven't reached the full level of osteoporsis. To our knowledge there isn't a code just for chemo induced bone loss. Our drug rep claims other offices are getting this covered. Any suggestions on what would be the correct way to code this?
