  • 18. Coding for Physicals- V70.0 vs V72.3x Sharla asks -When pt presents for annual physical and has GYN components to the exam, which ICD-9 would be used asprimary dx V70.0 or V72.3x? There is conflicting information out there on this subject, it seems some folks use both codes with V70.0 as primary and some only use V72.3x. ANSWER
  • 19. I would love to hear some discussion on the differences of the diagnostic/therapeutic wedge resections (32666 – 32668) and also the wedgeresections/biopsies (32607-32608). There is a lot of confusion with these codes between our coders, surgeons, and auditing department. Many times the surgeons will leave out wording such as complete resection orattention to margins and we have been told to then code it as a 32608 (fora lung mass) – even though the number of incisions and the rest of the opnote and path report matches the description for a therapeutic wedge. Thereimbursement is considerably different and this is causing a great deal ofstress between departments. Id really enjoysome information on this!! ANSWERCoding for Lungs and Pleura Procedures
