    Default Surveillance / Eval TIPS

    AAPC: Back to School
    What icd-9 code would you use for surveillance ultrasound of transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt(TIPS)?


  2. #2


    I have thought about V58.81, but I wonder was any diagnosis given for this procedure. What was on the order?

  3. #3


    Just said eval of TIPS, report states Patent Shunt - continue with evaluations

  4. #4


    I would ask why the TIPS shunt is in and the reason for the shunt even being there would be your diagnosis.
