Uric Acid

  1. Default Uric Acid
    Medical Coding Books
    Has any one had any problems with Anthem Blue Cross (California) denying the Uric Acids (84550) as not Medically Necessary? Thank You

    I called BC and was told that his code is a blocked code to 83615! Still doesn't make sense. Any of you out there ever heard of this before? Thanks
