    Question Help: Pom Screening

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can someone please tell me how to bill for a Carotid Artery screening and a Peripherial Aterial Disease screening? I have never heard of these type of screening before and could really use some help.

    Depends on what was done. It's likely that 93880 and 93970 were done, and dx code V81.2 would be the diagnosis code.

    what about the for the Peripherial Aterial Disease screening? i asked the tech what was it she was doing and she said they were only measuring the blood presure in the leg. Is there even a code for that?
