A pt. was seen for scoliosis with dx code 737.30 and a rib x-ray was done cpt code 71101. insurance denied the cpt code that dx. is unrelated. in the examination rib pain was recorded but A/P was 737.30. what code can i use that will be appropriate with the procedure code.your quick response will be appreciated. thank you.
