First of all - a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who has posted on this thread!!!
Second - what if the test is ordered as "screening for osteoporsis" but on the last dexa osteopenia was found. I believe it should still be coded V82.81, 733.90 as that follows guidelines. The only instance in which V82.81 would not be coded is if the provider ordered the dexa due to osteopenia...
This is a huge deal, as all of these are going to patient responsibility. We own the dexa and do the interp, so the global fee is being billed to the patient by our clinic.
