Forgive my late response.
996.73 is the correct code to use when you have a dialysis graft with a
"complication". We also use the chronic renal failure code as a second code
but have had no denials from medicare. Appeal it if you continue to get
denied. see you at SVT?
Thanks for the reply Sandy - it is such a big help to get info from
everyone. Now I have the ammo I need to appeal -
See you in New Orleans
