Rising PSA with in normal range

David Posted Thu 29th of January, 2015 16:41:32 PM

Another question with being new to coding and urology. We often have patients coming in and the notes indicate that their PSA level is rising but with in normal limits. Can this be coded with 790.93 since is it technically not elevated based of the range for their age? Or since it is rising can it be looked at elevated for this individual?

Also....to clarify....there is no code for a history of elevated PSA correct? Some are using V13.89...after looking further I am not sure I am comfortable with that.

Thank you

You may still use 790.93 even when technically it is not elevated based of the range for their age. Thanks !!

Thank you for clarification on the 790.93. What about the history code for Elevated PSA? Can V13.89 be used to indicate this?

Yes, you may use V13.89. There is no other code to represent history of Elevated PSA.
