Cpt 84153 & g0103

  1. Default Cpt 84153 & g0103
    Medical Coding Books
    Can anyone confirm if these 2 codes are equivalent to each other? I'm asking because Medicare & its replacement plans are denying 84153 with DX V76.44; I understand the NCD for 84153 but before I change it to G0103 I want to make sure it is the same test.
    I am reading different articles and some say yes while others say no - any help is appreciated.

  2. Default
    I would use the G0103 with the DX code you gave.

    G0103 - Description = Prostate cancer screening; prostate specific antigen test (psa)

  3. Default
    So then are these tests equivalent to each other?
