    Default lab ?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Laboratory called our office at family practice asking for diagnosis for 'sreening prostate " there is no diag for that. Our office usually sends pt for screening for prostate as part of routine exam. Can someone help?? Their saying we need another code, routine exam code will not be enough.

    Thank you all in advance

    How about V76.44 (special screening for malignant neoplasms of prostate)? Hope this helps.
