    Medical Coding Books
    Medicare will except v10.82 and v10.83 for a full body skin cancer check. Tricare standard full body skin cancer check, the v codes is a insufficient diagnosis. What would be a equivalent code?
    Thanks

    V10 codes are for history of having had a neoplasm, if this is a skin screening the appropriate code is the V76.43
