    Default Quad Screen and OB work up

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have been getting denied on my OB work and my Quad Screens labs and I was just wondering if there is a super secret that I'm missing.

    86703 v22.1
    86762 v73.3

    I would start with confirming the allowed diagnoses to support medical necessity. You might visit the CMC site: www.cms.hhs.gov because the Coding Policy Manual Jan 2010 has an update regarding the 86703 code. This is located in the Coding Policy Manual NCD page 20-27. Sorry I don't have the "super secret."
