    Default Breast Augmentation Pre-Op

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello -

    Does anyone know if V50.1 would be the allowable dx code for billing a pre-op for a patient's breast augmentation surgery? We are the PCP who was asked by the surgeon to to the pre-op. Note states patient unhappy with the size of her breasts. No medical condition noted.

    I would think so since there is no medical condition with this patient.
