Biopsy diagnosis

Kathleen Posted Wed 13th of November, 2013 12:32:57 PM

What is the appropriate diagnosis code to submit with a biopsy 11100/11101?

Would it be 238.2 or is it ok to wait for the path to come back and use the dx from the path report?

Yes. Whenever you can, use the diagnosis from the PATH report so you know whether or not to code benign or malignant.
