Thread: PICC line placement?

  1. #1

    Default PICC line placement?

    Hello, what ICD-9 code would be appropriate for x-ray done to evaluate position of picc line if reason for picc line placement does not meet medical necessity? I don't think an aftercare code would be appropriate since it wasn't a separate encounter. Any help would be appreciated!

    Did you try V58.81?
