    Default Psych eval for breast reduction

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone know a potential diagnosis for a psych eval for breast reduction?

    Most insurance companies does not require a Psych eval for a breast reduction, this service might not be covered no matter how you code it.

    I've never seen a psych eval requirement for breast reduction, but they do require a predetermination.
