    Please, please help. My physician (family practice) has male patients with hormone replacment therapy....AMA standard practice is that these patients have a PSA every 6 months, problem is coding the need for the PSA.....does anyone have any experience with this. Cannot use a screening diagnosis or ED, please advise.

    thanks

    Why can you not use a screening diagnosis??? If the standard practice is to repeat the PSA every 6 months, it would still be a diagnostic test.
