    Help please... Dr. is seeing pt every 6 mos & doing a flex larynoscopy to check for reoccurance of SCC of larynx. Do I use V10.21 history of neoplasm of larynx or the161.9? The pt has completed radiation therapy & currently has no signs of cancer.

    You would use the current dx code the patient has on that day. Our Medicare payer has added this dx to the LCD and Medicare pays.
