Anemia is valid for the proceedure, however I'd suggest avoiding the usage of Anemia, unspecified 285.9 specifically for Medicare for which this diagnosis code is not payable. With the documentation from the patients reffering physician your physician should be able to indicate a more specific form aof anemia such as Anemia , Fe Deficient: 280.9 or with blood loss 280.0. Of course if there are othe findings during the proceedure your primary code would be the highest level finding with the anemia becoming a mute point as most payors don't look beyond the primary diagnosis.
