95117

Meredith Posted Mon 05th of October, 2015 13:55:59 PM

If we are billing 95117 ONLY for routine allergy injections and we were using V07.1 with ICD-9 it maps it to Z51.89 for ICD10. Is this correct?

Well, you are absolutely correct with the code. V07.1 (need for desensitization to allergens) directly maps with Z51.89 (encounter for other specified after-care).

So Z51.89 is the correct code to bill for allergy shots?

If it is given for desensitization to allergens, then billing ICD-10 code Z51.89 is correct. Hope it helps!
