    Default Need ICD-9 Help Please

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can anyone please help me with an icd-9 code for a history of an Intracranial Aneurysm Repair? The patient had an MRI Brain and the findings were no Significant abnormalities on MRI Brain. The DX on the Dr's Script were Common Migrane and a histroy of an Intracranial Aneurysm. The Insurance is Medicare so the claim was denied as not medically necessary. Thanks

    That is good. But have a look at this code also because it comes closer to the point of having had some surgery in the vessels, than simply describing diseases of the circulatory system.
    V15.1 Surgery to heart an dgreat vessels- the great vessels need not necessarily apply to heart vessels alone.It is surgery in other vessels too
