Thread: Mammo Screening

    Default Mammo Screening

    AAPC: Back to School

    Im really hoping someone can help me out.
    In outpatient coding... A patient came in for an Ultrasound SCREENING, because they
    could not tolerate a mammogram due to the patient being mentally challenged.

    Here is my issue: I coded the screening V76.19 and mentally challenged as 2nd dx.
    Problem is this is a medicare patient and it is FMN.? Not sure if Im using the correct codes..

    Id appreciate any help!

    Thank you,
