Outpatient coding

March 25, 2008 @ 12:00 PM Reply  |  Email Friend   |  |Print  |  Top

We are having a "dispute" here about coding miscellaneous labs.  A list has been developed by our registration staff that they could use when a diagnosis code has not been given but a diagnosis has been given.
Example Dx: Jaundice - Hyperbilirubin-.
The registration staff will assign the code 774.6
Is this acceptable?
We have not begun this process, but are looking to see if it is ok.
