    Default ICD-9 V58.49 Medicare denied

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi Everyone,

    I help out the radiology department where I work part-time. They are using V58.49 whenever the patient is having an x-ray following a EG tube insertion, cath's and so forth. However, medicare denies V58.49. Any suggestion on what diagnosis code should be use?
