Note under V06 in ICD-9 book to Use Add'l codes

    Default Note under V06 in ICD-9 book to Use Add'l codes

    This question is about V06.8, Other combinations of vaccinations.

    For MMRV, for example, which does not have it's own combination code, the code is V06.8, Other combination.

    But there is a note under the V06 category to "use additional single vaccination codes from categories V03-V05 to identify any vaccinations not included in a combination code." What does this note mean?

    For MMRV, according to the note, do I also need to add the specific code for MMR and another for the Varicella?

    Thanks

    for MMRV I would use V06.8 if you are using the combination vaccine.



    If are seperate than for the MMR I would use V06.8 "need for prophylactic vaccination against measles-mumps-rubella"

    and for Varicella it would be V05.4 "Need for prophylactic vaccination and inoculation against varicella"

    I agree, but I'm still puzzled by the note under V06. It says:

    "Use additional single vaccination codes from categories V03-V05 to identify any vaccinations not included in a combination code."

    What is this note saying?
