    Default Abdominal Aortic Aneursym Ultrasounds

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can any one tell me where I can find some information on AAA USN's? I can find tons of information of screening AAA USN's but I need to know information on if a patient has been DX with a AAA and we want to follow and how to code this. Thank you for any help

    Look at codes 76700 - 76775, 93978 - 93979. One of them will probably "fit" what the physician wants to do.

    Look At 93979
