This is the only thing I got in my email from one of my clinics. I have no idea how I could code this. Maybe I need more info from them?

Hi Stuart,
I have an order from the doctor for a TSH level for symptoms of tremor. I have scanned the list of ICD9 and this not a choice. Do you know if a code exists for this symptom?
Thanks,
Jo

head tremors today

I just happened to come across something similar today- the patient had head tremors due to her TSH levels. They lowered the dose of Levoxyl.

Tremor codes to 781.0. Did the email mean tremor wasn't an acceptable code for medical necessity of the test?


Yeah I found that as a code too, but I really couldn't get any other info from her on this. To be honest I think you are right about it just not being a medical necessity. She was trying to see what code she could use to get maximum reimbursement. This is an dialysis company FYI.
