I would use 790.99, nonspecific findings on examination of blood. I could not find anything specific to BNP elevation.

Hi,

I would agree with Scatlot, the appropriate code for Elevated BNP is 790.99.

Plasma BNP - Brain natriuretic peptide is a 32- amino acid polypeptide and an increase in plasma BNP (greater than 100 pg per mL) is a marker for CHF

Hope this helps you.

Thank You,

Purnima S, CPC

Abnormal, findings, pro-brain natriuretic peptide (BNP)

I agree with 790.99 as well.
