    Factor Five Genetic Testing for Procreative Management: We are having a debate on how to code this (CPT and ICD-9). Can anyone helps us settle this? What would you do? (Physicain and in house lab)

    Default RE: ICD/CPT Factor V LEIDEN

    Pls find the CPT codes:

    83890(1)+83891(1)+83892(1)+83894(1)+83898(1)+83912 (1)
    For Non Medicare
    S3843- DNA analysis of the F5 gene for susceptibility to Factor V Leiden thrombophilia
    RE: ICD
    Coding Guidelines Note: If the purpose of genetic
    counseling is associated with procreative management, a
    code from V26.3X should be assigned as the primary code,
    followed by a code from category V84. Any additional codes
    would be assigned if there is a family/personal history.

    As I need additional information for ICD code choice, (reason for genetic testing is NOT specified; diagnostic or predicting the presence with F/H) I'm just providing you the ICD guidelines.

    Default Yes

    I agree. I use all of the above 26 and V84 codes. I have a question, if a physician sends to my lab personal and family history, but does not mark off the icd9 codes, can I code them to bill?
