    Default PET Scan diagnoses??
    Medical Coding Books
    Just wondering if any of you out there are having issues being reimbured for PET Scans for ICD9 releated reasons?

    Thanks in advance for your replies.

    There are guidlines published through Noridian and CMS website pertaining to NCD's and coverable diagnosis, the last revision was May 10, 2010.

    the website is www.cms.cov/manuals/downloads/ncd103c1_part4.pdf
