Why are my claims for the Vitamin B12 using "J3420" being rejected by Medicare and other payer(s)?

Pls let me know what ICD is used with J3420.

"285.9" "250.XX" "493.XX"

You did not mention if you were ONLY giving the injection or was this done in conjunction with an office visit. Strictly for the injection I would use CPT 96372 along with DX codes of 2811 for B12 def and the main diagnosis code - i.e., celiac disease (5790) or Colitis) 5551. You cannot just use the J code. Hope this helps
