code for Vitamin D screening

  • 1.  code for Vitamin D screening

    ​Hello all,
    In the setting of an outpatient clinic, what would be the appropriate ICD10 code to use when a physician orders a Vitamin D level in the context of the annual physical? Is that covered by/fall under Z00.00?

    Thank you

    Z13.21
    Encounter for screening for nutritional disorder
    I think that would work, unless there is a diagnosis code for hair loss, bone pain, fatigue or some other symptom of a low level than one of those should work.
