ICD-9 pregnancy screening dx

  1. Default ICD-9 pregnancy screening dx
    Medical Coding Books
    This is a new one for me... A serum pregnancy test was done in our office to confirm a negative result, so an x-ray could be taken. No pregnancy signs or symptoms at the time of service.

    If anyone knows what ICD-9 code should be used, I would appreciate the your help.

    Why not V72.41?

  3. Default I agree V72.41
    that is the one that I would use too.

    we did a serum pregnancy test to confirm negative pregnancy prior to doing a surgery. BCBS wants a medical diagnosis, they deny V72.41 as not a covered diagnosis. I would be interested in any suggestions.

    there is no other dx code you can use, if it is non covered then that is your answer.
