    Can anyone give some feedback on what code to use for a history of Vitamin D Deficiency? We have had a lot of discussions regarding this, and the best code we can come up with is Z86.39.

    If the patient is still on treatment it should be an active Vit D deficiency code.

    If they just don't have it anymore and not on medicine for it then you can use that code
    CRC (2018), CPC-P-A (2016), COC-A (2016), CPC-A (2015), PAHM (2010)
