You can and should code the pre-op OV but you probably won't get pd for it as it is usuallly rolled into the cost of the procedure. I would get an ABN just to be safe or just eat the charge of the OV.
I would probably use V76.51, though it's a tough one, along w/ the code ICD-9 dx for renal failure.
Anyone else think this is a high risk screening instead? I'm on the fence here.
Might also need to check on the benefits since some have a stipulation that once you use the dx (V76.51) you can't use it again within the set time limit.
