Medicare is denying our labs that are drawn to monitor lipids of patients taking antipsychotic medications. Currently we are coding the patients condition but is there another code we should/could be using? Any help is appreciated!! My manager is wanting a response asap and I'm at a loss on this one...

Dx for antipsych meds

Hi if you are using the psych dx it may not link to the lipid. Generally I would look for a linking dx for the lipid. You may have to find a way to find out if the medication is fat soluble and attach that documentation to the claim.
