Some payers are rejecting/denying a Ductal Carcimona In Situ when submitted with an invasive breast cancer code, on the same breast. DCIS is technically considered Stage 0 cancer, but would it be required to search for this code in a patient's medical record and add the code on the claim if it is technically not relevant to the testing?
