    Question Dx for Hepatitis B Titer

    Does anyone know the correct dx code to use for a Hepatitis B Titer? The patient has had the Hepatitis B vaccines and the doctor has ordered a titer. I billed it with V77.99. It denied.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Hello,
    For vaccination given for hepatitis B -90731, 90636-V05.3
    But, a titre has been ordered- it should only be an office visit accompanied by the above codes.So, it should be,
    99213-25- probably at this level of decision making-a viral fever or chills from the medical record as Dx should be appropriate for the E/M;
    Followed by,
    90636-Check-mostly it is this code that comes with hepatitis vaccine-which is a combination of both A and B-V05.3 given as Dx.

    Thanks for your reply. I understand the vaccine dx code
    V05.3 but would you use that code also for the titer if you are checking for immunity?

    Thanks

    Default Antibody Testing

    Did anyone come up with a covered code for this. I tried the V05.3 originally but the insurance company didnt like it.

    Exclamation How would you DX this?

    A patient presents for swelling, tenderness and erythema at the upper extremity injection site following Hepatitis B vaccination. The patient has a localized infection. What ICD-9-CM code should be reported?
