90723 dx question

    Default 90723 dx question
    Medical Coding Books
    I am confused when picking a dx for 90723 Diptheria, tetanus toxoids, acellular pertussis and Hemophilus influenza B vaccine DtaP-Hib
    I did not see a actual combo dx code for this so would you use v06.8 or would you use V06.1 V03.81

    The reason I say the second part is under V06 is the Note stating "Use additional single vacccination codes from vategories v03-v05 to identify any vaccinations not included in a combination code.

    Any thoughts on which is the correct dx??

    Thanks

    I would probably use V06.3 since it contains the DTP + polio and V05.3 for the hep.

    And V03.81 for the Hemophilus influenza B vaccine

    I was looking at 90721 instead of 90723
