I would think that--that would depend upon the payor. Certain payors don't pay certain CPTs when linked with particular ICD9s. If you notice a "pattern of denial" maybe you could contact that particular payor for more info. In the case of Medicare, if the procedure has an LCD attached, you can consult the LCD to see what ICD9 codes are appropriate (paid) for that procedure. Hope this helps...
