    Red face Abnormal/ elevated calcium score

    AAPC: Back to School
    I need help in finding the icd-9 code for this. My doctor said use 414.00. But this didnt work we have a denial. Last year someone told us it was 793.99- that wasnt right either. Help!!! Thanks in advance..........

    what CPT are you coding? If it is the scan itself, check with Medicare if there is an LCD list for the scan. Unfortunately there isn't a dx for abnormal calcium score. I've had to look for this dx and didnt find anything.

    good luck,

    Thanks for getting back with me. I've used it for a nuc and for a cath. Checking with mcr for lcd is a good idea.
