We are referring a patient to a hematologist due to JAK2 Gene positive on bloodwork. What diagnosis code would you assign?

Thanks for your question.
Please note that this test is performed to help diagnose the bone marrow disorders characterised by overproduction of one or more types of blood cells (white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets) known as myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs). Now since you are referring this patient to a hematologist, we should wait for the hematologist to declare the final diagnosis based on this test. Then we can suggest you the appropriate ICD-10 CM code based on that definitive diagnosis.
Please feel free to write if you have any question.
