    V58.69 is a secondary code I use V58.83 first followed by V58.69 followed by the reason for the med third.

    Default Drug monitoring

    The screening code for therapeutic drug monitoring (V58.83) says use additional code for any associated long-term (current) drug use(V58.61-V58.69)

    Just to clarify V58.83 is NOT a screening code it is a code for monitoring a patients drug to be certain the desired results are being attained with no ill effects.

    Default V58.69 as Primary

    That code is never the primary. You could use V58.83 then V58.69 and the code for ADD or ADHD because you are monitoring the drugs for the ADD.

    How does V58.69 affect reimbursment? I just started a new job and the billing dept. told me not to use V codes or HCPCs codes as they don't add to revenue. But then they are still using 2009 coding books! It is my job to keep in compliance.
