EKG's-Does anyone

  1. Question EKG's-Does anyone
    Medical Coding Books
    Does anyone have a "list" of medical necessity diagnosis codes for a 93010? I have one from 2000 but am unable to find anything newer. Thank you for help or direction.

    Not sure if you'll be able to access this link but if not, then check the cms website for "lcd" 93010. Hope this helps!

    If you go to your Medicare Carrier's website and look up the LMP for EKG's it will give you a list of all medically necessary diagnosis codes.
