Vitamin B-12

I could use some guidance for billing B-12 shots. We have a patient that was getting 2000mcg every 2 weeks due to health issues. We started getting denials stating that Medicare would only pay for 1000mcg according to the LCD. Now the LCD is retired. Our patient's levels have dropped dramatically and the physician wants patient to get 1000mcg weekly. I am worried about reimbursement. Can anyone shed light on this for me?

Thank you,
