I do hospital coding, we had a general surgeon admit a patient through the ER, the surgeon did a CT of abdomen that was suggestive of appendicitis, the WBC was elevated. The surgeon went and did an appendectomy, the path report came back with no significant findings. Can anybody offer suggestions how to code this? The patient accourding to path did not have acute appendicitis. I have put a question out to the physician, I am waiting to hear back from him. Any help is greatly appreciated.
