    My general practice physician occasionally sends a Medicare patient for a SED rate. Does anyone know what diagnose Medicare needs to pay for a SED rate?

    I don't seen a Lab NCD for this so it would probably be paid and maybe they randomly audit to make sure they are submitted with medically necessary diagnoses?
