    Hello,

    I am new to Pediatrics and need a little help with a dx code. Medi-cal (Calif Medicaid) is denying 99391 when we bill with dx code V20.32. Is there another dx code we can use to bill preventive care?


    Thanks,

    Dolores

    Try it with V202. Since V20.32 is a new code they may not have it loaded in their system. We've had this same problem with a lot of out payors whenver new codes come out they take a while to get them loaded.

    Use either V20.2 or V70.3. I hope that this helps.

    Thank you for your responses. I will try billing with V20.2 and hopefully we will get paid.
