coding allergy shots

    Default coding allergy shots
    Medical Coding Books
    I'm coding allergy shots that were given in the clinic. I'm using cpt's 95115, 95117, 95120, and 95125. I've been using the appropriate allergy dx - 477.00 - 477.9 depending on the allergen. I'm being told that I also need to use V07.1 because it's a "vaccination" of sorts. Does anyone have any information on this?? Thanks!!

    No you do not need to use the V code.

    Thanks!! Has anyone had claims denied for not having the V07.1?

    I've never used the "V" code and have no problems.
