Patient came in to office on 7/11 had injection done. On 7/13 came back in due to redness on injection site had a reaction to tetanus vaccine. The provider used ( T50.A95A) Claim went out with T88.1XXA and T50.A95A as secondary dx. but we are getting a denial stating dx inconsistent with procedure? what is the appropriate dx code? thanks.

Hi, the codes you have mentioned are appropriate for complication following vaccine. Please check with your payer for their preferences or further clarity on denial reason. Thank you.
