    I'm having a hard time with CPT 93971 CRD US Vascular Lower Extremity Left. 782.3 Edema is not accepted at BCBS.

    Why don't you try for 729.5 or 729.81?

    I am out of North Dakota and my LCD for BCBS shows that 782.3 is covered, you may want to re-check with them to be sure. Also covered on my LCD is 729.81 and 729.5.
