    I was looking this up and my MD walked in, so I asked her if a hyperplastic colon polyp is benign and she said yes. I will use 211.3 for the polyp. I don't do thrombophilia testing, so I don't know that answer.

    Default thrombophilia testing

    V78 special screening for disorders of blood and blood-forming organs:
    v78.8 other disorders

    What about 790.92 or 286.9 for thrombophilia since its a coagulation defect
