If a patient presents with leg pain and x-rays of the leg are taken and the end result is muscle cramps due to dehydration. Is the dehydration enough to cover the x-ray or would you need to add a screening V code? Thanks.

check your LCD's lists.
(I'm not sure where you're at or which xray procedure code was used or I would have helped a bit more) ;)

I thought the leg pain / dehydration was a given (I'd code both)- and you were looking to find out if they were covered dx's... (that's why I pointed you in the direction of the LCD's - to see if leg pain / dehydration were covered dx's for what ever xray was done)
