Question: Is the ICD-9 443.9 (PVD) Code for ordering a Non Invasive
Arterial Exam Legit ?
I have been recieving order forms and all diagnosis's are "PVD". When
notifying the office, the nurses are adament that it is covered. Billing
dept. is unsure.
I thought PVD was too ambiguous to be recognized. The ICD-9 code has
(intermittant claudication) in parenthesis.
