Hi,

When coding screening mammograms and the patient has a hx of breast CA and also a family hx of breast ca, do I code both.....V103 and V163.

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

I would use the V76.11 which is for hi risk patient. And put the pt hx of breast Ca. V10.3 and the family hx V16.3 as secondary. (See the coding clinics 2nd quarter 2003)
