V code for monoclonal antibody

  1. #1
    Default V code for monoclonal antibody
    Medical Coding Books
    Can I use V58.11(encounter for antineoplastic chemotherapy) or V58.12 (encounter for antineoplastic immunotherapy) for Denosumab (monoclonal antibody)? I've read where it is appropiate to use that code but I can't put my finger on the documentation to support it.

    V58.12 is the correct code. Most MABs are V58.12
