Dx for test of poor quality

  1. Default Dx for test of poor quality
    Exam Training Packages
    I have a patient who is needing a repeat MRI due to the fact that the original films were of poor quality. We are trying to get this pre-authorized, and I'm having a tough time finding and ICD-9 to relate this to the insurance company. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

    If the test is being repeated due to error/malfunction of the equipment or operator my experience is that you don't bill for the retake.
