    Question Gilenya monitoring by cardiologist

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am looking for suggestions for diagnosis codes to help describe the reason for cardiology monitoring while administering Gilenya for patient with MS. This is a new service my cardiologists are providing to a referring neurologist. Any ideas?

    Thanks, Priscilla

    I'm not sure exactly which category Gilenya fits in, but "E" codes starting with E930 (Drugs, Medicinal, and Biological Subst causing adverse effects in therapeutic Use) might fit the situation...hope this helps
