Medicare National and Local Coverage Determination Policy – FLORIDA
Policies in this MLCP Reference Guide apply to testing performed at a Quest Diagnostics facility and apply to Medicare National Coverage Determination Policy.
This diagnosis code reference guide is provided as an aid to physicians and office staff in determining when an ABN (Advance Beneficiary Notice) is necessary.
Diagnosis codes must be applicable to the patient’s symptoms or conditions and must be consistent with documentation in the patient’s medical record.
Quest Diagnostics does not recommend any diagnosis codes and will only submit diagnosis information provided to us by the ordering physician or his/her
designated staff. The CPT codes provided are based on AMA guidelines and are for informational purposes only. CPT coding is the sole responsibility of the
billing party. Please direct any questions regarding coding to the payer being billed.

Allergy Testing (L31271) 1 OF 2
Data Source: http://www.cms.gov
CPT Code 86003
LCD Description: Allergy is a form of exaggerated sensitivity or hypersensitivity to a substance that is either inhaled, ingested, injected, or comes in contact with
the skin or eye. The term allergy is used to describe situations where hypersensitivity results from heightened or altered reactivity of the immune system in response
to external substances. Allergic or hypersensitivity disorders may be manifested by generalized systemic reactions as well as localized reactions in any part of the
body. The reactions may be acute, sub-acute, or chronic, immediate or delayed, and may be caused by a variety of offending agents; pollen, molds, mites, dust,
feathers, animal fur or dander, venoms, foods, drugs, etc.
Allergy testing is performed to determine a patient's immunologic sensitivity or reaction to particular allergens for the purpose of identifying the cause of the allergic
state, and is based on findings during a complete medical and immunologic history and appropriate physical exam obtained by face-to-face contact with the patient.
ICD-9-CM Codes that Support Medical Necessity: The Allergy Testing test is determined to be medically necessary by Medicare only when it is ordered for
patients with one of the conditions listed below. ICD-9-CM codes that support medical necessity are listed, but it is not enough to link the procedure code to a correct
payable ICD-9-CM code. The diagnosis must be present for the procedure to be paid and the procedure must be reasonable and medically necessary for that
diagnosis. Documentation within the patient’s medical record must support the medical necessity for the test(s). This list was compiled from the Medicare National
Coverage Determination Policy. An ICD-D-9-CM book should be used as a complete reference.

B-Type Natriuretic Peptide (BNP) (L29065)
Data Source: http://www.cms.gov
CPT Code 83880
LCD Description:. LCD Description:. Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) is characterized by a progressive activation of the neurohormonal systems that
control vasoconstriction and sodium retention; the activation of these systems plays a role in its pathogenesis and progression. As the heart fails, B-Type
Natriuretic Peptide (BNP), a cardiac neurohormone is secreted from the cardiac ventricles in response to ventricular volume expansion and pressure
overload. Used in conjunction with other clinical information, rapid measurement of BNP is useful in establishing or excluding the diagnosis and
assessment of severity of CHF in patients with acute dyspnea so that appropriate and timely treatment can be initiated. This test is also used to predict
the long-term risk of cardiac events or death across the spectrum of acute coronary syndromes when measured in the first few days after an acute
coronary event. For the purposes of this policy, the total and N terminal assays are both acceptable.
ICD-9-CM Codes that Support Medical Necessity: The B-Type Natriuretic Peptide (BNP is determined to be medically necessary by Medicare only when it
is ordered for patients with one of the conditions listed below. ICD-9-CM codes that support medical necessity are listed, but it is not enough to link the
procedure code to a correct payable ICD-9-CM code. The diagnosis must be present for the procedure to be paid and the procedure must be reasonable
and medically necessary for that diagnosis. Documentation within the patient’s medical record must support the medical necessity for the test(s) provided

Circulating tumor cell testing (L32098)
Data Source: http://www.cms.gov
CPT Codes 86152 and 86153
LCD Description: Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) are rare malignant cells found in the peripheral blood which originate from the primary tumor or
metastatic sites. The
Detection of CTCs has several propased application, some of which have been reported in well-designed observational studies (prospective and
retrospective) of patients with metastatic cancers. There are also several controlled clinical trials in progress assessing the clinical utility of CTC
results in the care of patients with metastatic cancers (appliction in clinical decision making that impacts patient outcomes). There are several
methods of detecting CTCs whick are in various stages of reseaarch and development. The low level of concentration of malignant epithelial cells in
blood samples makes them diffcult to detect though the push to improve surveilance and treatment of cancer patients makes CTC an area of
research development. The techniques that have been used to detect CTCs include direct methods (enrichment/detection) including
Immunomagnetic Bead Separation, Immunohistochemistry (IHC), automated fluorescent methods. Dielectrophoresis and indirect methods (reversetranscriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) nucleic acid analysis).
ICD-9-CM Codes that Support Medical Necessity: The Circulating tumor cell testing is determined to be medically necessary by Medicare only
when it is ordered for patients with one of the conditions listed below. ICD-9-CM codes that support medical necessity are listed, but it is not
enough to link the procedure code to a correct payable ICD-9-CM code. The diagnosis must be present for the procedure to be paid and the
procedure must be reasonable and medically necessary for that diagnosis. Documentation within the patient’s medical record must support the

Flow Cytometry (L31247) 1 of 4
Data Source: http://www.cms.gov
CPT Codes 88182, 88184, 88185, 88187, 88188 and 88189
LCD Description: Flow cytometry (FCM) is a procedure which simultaneously measures and analyzes multiple physical characteristics of single cells, as they flow in a fluid stream through a
beam of light. The light activates fluorescent molecules, resulting in light scatter, which forms a pattern that can be analyzed for cell characteristics. FCM can be used to analyze blood, body
fluids, CSF, bone marrow, lymph node, tonsil, spleen and other solid organs. Information from the analyzed cells may help determine prognosis, aid in the analysis of effusions, urine, or other
fluids in which cancer cells may be few or mixed with benign cells, detect metastases in lymph nodes or bone marrow, or to supplement fine needle aspiration. The flow cytometer is made up
of three main systems: fluidics, optics and electronics. The fluidic system transports particles in a stream to the laser beam. The optics system consists of lasers to illuminate the particles in the
sample stream and optical filters to direct the resulting light signals to the appropriate detectors. The electronics system converts the detected light signals into electronic signals that can be
processed by the computer. Some flow cytometers have a sorting feature which allows the electronic system to initiate sorting decisions to charge and deflect particles.
ICD-9-CM Codes that Support Medical Necessity: The Flow Cytometry test is determined to be medically necessary by Medicare only when it is ordered for patients with one of the
conditions listed below. ICD-9-CM codes that support medical necessity are listed, but it is not enough to link the procedure code to a correct payable ICD-9-CM code. The diagnosis must be
present for the procedure to be paid and the procedure must be reasonable and medically necessary for that diagnosis. Documentation within the patient’s medical record must support the
medical necessity for the test(s). This list was compiled from the Medicare National Coverage Determination Policy. An ICD-D-9-CM book should be used as a complete reference.

fluids in which cancer cells may be few or mixed with benign cells, detect metastases in lymph nodes or bone marrow, or to supplement fine needle aspiration. The flow cytometer is made up
of three main systems: fluidics, optics and electronics. The fluidic system transports particles in a stream to the laser beam. The optics system consists of lasers to illuminate the particles in the
sample stream and optical filters to direct the resulting light signals to the appropriate detectors. The electronics system converts the detected light signals into electronic signals that can be
processed by the computer. Some flow cytometers have a sorting feature which allows the electronic system to initiate sorting decisions to charge and deflect particles.
ICD-9-CM Codes that Support Medical Necessity: The Flow Cytometry test is determined to be medically necessary by Medicare only when it is ordered for patients with one of the
conditions listed below. ICD-9-CM codes that support medical necessity are listed, but it is not enough to link the procedure code to a correct payable ICD-9-CM code. The diagnosis must be
present for the procedure to be paid and the procedure must be reasonable and medically necessary for that diagnosis. Documentation within the patient’s medical record must support the
medical necessity for the test(s). This list was compiled from the Medicare National Coverage Determination Policy. An ICD-D-9-CM book should be used as a complete reference.

Hepatitis B Surface Antibody (L29189) 1 of 2
Data Source: http://www.cms.gov
CPT Code 86706
LCD Description:. Hepatitis refers to inflammation of the liver. Approximately 50% of all acute viral hepatitis cases in the United States are type B. Hepatitis B is caused by the hepatitis B
virus (HBV) which is spread by blood and serum-derived fluids through direct contact with these body fluids (such as transmission through parenteral, sexual and perinatal modes). The
incubation period for hepatitis B can be six weeks to six months with a slow onset. The most frequent presenting symptoms of acute viral hepatitis are low-grade fever, anorexia, fatigue,
myalgia, and nausea followed one to two weeks later by jaundice. Dark urine and clay colored stools present several days before jaundice. After the onset of jaundice, the liver enlarges
and becomes tender. About 5% of patients infected with the hepatitis B virus develop what is coined the “serum-sickness syndrome”. The syndrome includes the symptoms of jaundice,
fever, rash and arthralgia. Hepatitis B may be quite mild, while a few patients could rapidly progress to death suffering from acute necrosis of the liver. Some patients with hepatitis B
(approximately 6%-10%) may progress to a persistent carrier status confirmed by the consistently present hepatitis B surface antigen in their blood. These patients are highly likely to
transmit hepatitis B. Each case of hepatitis B is treated symptomatically.
Hepatitis B surface antibody (HbsAb or anti-HBs) is present in the serum of patients who have resolved a previous hepatitis B infection or have been vaccinated against hepatitis B. The
disappearance of hepatitis B antigen with the appearance of hepatitis B antibody signals recovery from the hepatitis B infection, the status of noninfectivity and protection from recurrent
hepatitis B infection. Hepatitis B surface antibody can be detected several weeks to several years after Hepatitis B antigen can no longer be detected. It may persist for life after the acute
infection has been resolved. Since there are different serologic subtypes of the hepatitis B virus, it is possible for a patient to have an antibody for one subtype and be infected with
another. Transfused individuals or hemophiliacs receiving plasma components may have false positive tests. Individuals vaccinated with HBV vaccine will have antibodies. The
appearance of the hepatitis B antibody following vaccination signals successful vaccination against hepatitis B. The detection of hepatitis B surface antibody in the patient’s serum can be
performed by either the radioimmunoassay (RIA) or enzyme immunoassay (EIA) method. The reference range varies with the clinical circumstance.
ICD-9-CM Codes that Support Medical Necessity The Hepatitis B Surface Antibody is determined to be medically necessary by Medicare only when it is ordered for patients with one of

progress to a persistent carrier status confirmed by the consistently present hepatitis B surface antigen in their blood. These patients are highly likely to transmit
hepatitis B. Each case of hepatitis B is treated symptomatically.
Hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) is the earliest indicator of an acute hepatitis B infection. It can be detected one to seven weeks before liver enzyme elevation or
the onset of clinical symptoms. The serology of 50% of affected patients will be positive three weeks after acute onset, while at the seventeen week mark only 10%
will remain positive. There is evidence of a “window” stage where the hepatitis B surface antigen has become negative and the patient has not yet developed the
hepatitis B surface antibody. The chronic carrier state is indicated by the persistence of hepatitis B surface antigen over six months and longer (even years) while
never seroconverting to hepatitis B surface antibody. The reference range is negative. The detection of the hepatitis B surface antigen establishes the presence of
infection and implies infectivity.

Hepatitis B Surface Antigen (L29189) 2 of 3
Data Source: http://www.cms.gov
CPT Code 87340
LCD Description:. Hepatitis refers to inflammation of the liver. Approximately 50% of all acute viral hepatitis cases in the United States are type B. Hepatitis B is
caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV) which is spread by blood and serum-derived fluids through direct contact with these body fluids (such as transmission through
parenteral, sexual and perinatal modes). The incubation period for hepatitis B can be six weeks to six months with a slow onset. The most frequent presenting
symptoms of acute viral hepatitis are low-grade fever, anorexia, fatigue, myalgia, and nausea followed one to two weeks later by jaundice. Dark urine and clay colored
stools present several days before jaundice. After the onset of jaundice, the liver enlarges and becomes tender. About 5% of patients infected with the hepatitis B
virus develop what is coined the “serum-sickness syndrome”. The syndrome includes the symptoms of jaundice, fever, rash and arthralgia. Hepatitis B may be quite
mild, while a few patients could rapidly progress to death suffering from acute necrosis of the liver. Some patients with hepatitis B (approximately 6%-10%) may
progress to a persistent carrier status confirmed by the consistently present hepatitis B surface antigen in their blood. These patients are highly likely to transmit
hepatitis B. Each case of hepatitis B is treated symptomatically.
Hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) is the earliest indicator of an acute hepatitis B infection. It can be detected one to seven weeks before liver enzyme elevation or
the onset of clinical symptoms. The serology of 50% of affected patients will be positive three weeks after acute onset, while at the seventeen week mark only 10%
will remain positive. There is evidence of a “window” stage where the hepatitis B surface antigen has become negative and the patient has not yet developed the
hepatitis B surface antibody. The chronic carrier state is indicated by the persistence of hepatitis B surface antigen over six months and longer (even years) while
never seroconverting to hepatitis B surface antibody. The reference range is negative. The detection of the hepatitis B surface antigen establishes the presence of
infection and implies infectivity.
ICD-9-CM Codes that Support Medical Necessity The Hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) is determined to be medically necessary by Medicare only when it is
ordered for patients with one of the conditions listed below. ICD-9-CM codes that support medical necessity are listed, but it is not enough to link the procedure code
to a correct payable ICD-9-CM code. The diagnosis must be present for the procedure to be paid and the procedure must be reasonable and medically necessary for
that diagnosis. Documentation within the patient’s medical record must support the medical necessity for the test(s) provided.

Ionized Calcium (L29206)
Data Source: http://www.cms.gov
CPT Code 82330
LCD Description: The bulk of body calcium (98%-99%) is stored in the skeleton and teeth, which act as huge reservoirs for maintaining the blood levels
of calcium. Ionized calcium is a cation that circulates freely in the bloodstream and comprises 46-50% of all circulating calcium. Only the ionized calcium
can be used by the body in such vital processes as muscular contraction, cardiac function, transmission of nerve impulses, and blood clotting. Ionized
calcium is considered a more sensitive and accurate indicator for many operative procedures and disease processes. A normal serum ionized calcium for
an adult is 4.65 - 5.28 mg/dl.
ICD-9-CM Codes that Support Medical Necessity The Ionized Calcium test is determined to be medically necessary by Medicare only when it is
ordered for patients with one of the conditions listed below. ICD-9-CM codes that support medical necessity are listed, but it is not enough to link the
procedure code to a correct payable ICD-9-CM code. The diagnosis must be present for the procedure to be paid and the procedure must be reasonable
and medically necessary for that diagnosis. Documentation within the patient’s medical record must support the medical necessity for the test(s). This list

Magnesium (L29217) 1 of 3
Data Source: http://www.cms.gov
CPT Code 83735
LCD Description:.. Magnesium is an important activator ion, participating in the function of many enzymes involved in phosphate transfer reactions.
Most of the magnesium found within the body exists intracellularly, and since most of it is bound to adenosine triphosphate, this electrolyte is critical in nearly all metabolic
processes and most organ functions. Magnesium exerts physiologic effects on the nervous system resembling those of calcium, acting directly upon the myoneural
junction. Furthermore, magnesium acts as a cofactor that modifies the activity of many enzymes. Carbohydrate, protein, and nucleic acid metabolism depend on
magnesium. Excretion of magnesium is via the kidney, and altered concentration of magnesium in the plasma usually provokes an associated alteration of calcium and
potassium. The normal plasma concentration of magnesium is 1.5-2.5 meq/L, with about one-third bound to protein and two-thirds existing as free cation.
ICD-9-CM Codes that Support Medical Necessity: The Magnesium test is determined to be medically necessary by Medicare only when it is ordered for patients with
one of the conditions listed below. ICD-9-CM codes that support medical necessity are listed, but it is not enough to link the procedure code to a correct payable ICD-9-CM

Non-Covered ICD-9-CM Codes for All NCD Edits
Florida
Data Source: http://www.cms.gov
This section lists codes that are never covered. If a code from this section is given as the reason for
the test, the test may be billed to the Medicare beneficiary without billing Medicare first because the
service is not covered by statute, in most instances because it is performed for screening purposes
and is not within an exception. The beneficiary, however, does have a right to have the claim
submitted to Medicare, upon request.

Medicare Local Coverage Determination Policy – Florida
Parathormone, (Parathyroid Hormone) (L29251) 1 of 2
Data Source: http://www.cms.gov
CPT Code 83970
LCD Description:. Normally, PTH release is regulated by a negative feedback mechanism involving serum calcium. Normal or
elevated circulating calcium (especially the ionized form) inhibits PTH release; a decrease in calcium ions stimulates PTH release. The overall effect of
PTH is to raise plasma levels of calcium while lowering phosphorus levels by stimulating osteoclasts and osteocytes to mobilize both calcium and
phosphorus from bone; by acting on renal tubular cells to promote calcium reabsorption and phosphorus excretion; and by promoting intestinal
absorption of calcium.
There are three molecular forms of PTH: (1) intact, also called native or glandular hormone; (2) multiple NH2-terminal fragments; and (3) COOHterminal fragments. Different laboratories assay the three different parts of the PTH molecule. The intact hormone assay most clearly differentiates
hyperparathyroidism from nonparathyroid hypercalcemia. The N-terminal (mid-region) fragment contains the active portion of the molecule, but these
assays may not measure intact hormone. The C-terminal fragment contains an inactive portion of the molecule; it is the next best choice of assays if the
intact hormone assay is not available. The C-terminal fragment is the oldest and most widely available assay. Normal serum PTH levels vary,
depending on the laboratory but are typically as follows: Intact PTH: 10 to 65 pg/ml; N-terminal fraction: 8 to 24 pg/ml; and C-terminal fraction: 0 to 340
pg/ml.
The PTH is normally measured concomitantly with serum calcium levels. Abnormally elevated PTH values may indicate primary, secondary, or tertiary
hyperparathyroidism. Abnormally low PTH levels may result from hypoparathyroidism and from certain malignant diseases such as squamous cell
carcinoma of the lung, renal carcinoma, pancreatic carcinoma, or ovarian carcinoma
ICD-9-CM Codes that Support Medical Necessity The Parathormone (Parathyroid Hormone) is determined to be medically necessary by Medicare
only when it is ordered for patients with one of the conditions listed below. ICD-9-CM codes that support medical necessity are listed, but it is not
enough to link the procedure code to a correct payable ICD-9-CM code. The diagnosis must be present for the procedure to be paid and the procedure
must be reasonable and medically necessary for that diagnosis. Documentation within the patient’s medical record must support the medical necessity
for the test(s) provided.

CPT Code 84100
LCD Description: Phosphorus is a non-metallic chemical element. Most of the body’s phosphorus is combined with calcium within the skeleton;
however, approximately 15% of phosphorus exists in the blood as a phosphate salt. Phosphates help store and utilize body energy. Additionally, they
help regulate calcium levels, carbohydrate and lipid metabolism, and acid-base balance. Vitamin D is important in the absorption and metabolism of
phosphorus. Phosphorus levels are determined by calcium metabolism, parathyroid hormone, and to a lesser degree by intestinal absorption. Normal
serum phosphorus is 2.5-4.5 mg/dl. Serum phosphate levels help to detect endocrine, skeletal, and calcium disorders, and aid in the diagnosis of renal
disorders and acid-base imbalance.
ICD-9-CM Codes that Support Medical Necessity: The Serum Phosphorus test is determined to be medically necessary by Medicare only when it is
ordered for patients with one of the conditions listed below. ICD-9-CM codes that support medical necessity are listed, but it is not enough to link the
procedure code to a correct payable ICD-9-CM code. The diagnosis must be present for the procedure to be paid and the procedure must be
reasonable and medically necessary for that diagnosis. Documentation within the patient’s medical record must support the medical necessity for the
test(s) provided.

Data Source: http://www.cms.gov
CPT Code 87181, 87184, 87185, 87186, 87187, 87188 and 87190
LCD Description: Some microorganisms are resistant to certain antimicrobials. Susceptibility testing is often used to determine the likelihood that a particular drug
treatment regimen will be effective in eliminating or inhibiting the growth of the infection. A culture of the infected area must be done to obtain the organism for
identification and to allow susceptibility testing to be performed if warranted. Referred to by the type of body fluid or cells collected (such as: blood culture, urine culture,
sputum culture, wound culture, etc.), the culture involves incubating a sample at body temperature in a nutrient-rich environment. This process promotes the replication
of any microorganisms present in the sample. Samples from the skin, stool, or sputum will grow normal flora as well as pathogenic bacteria if they are present. Other
body samples, such as blood and urine, are usually sterile; they will show little or no growth unless a pathogenic microorganism is present.
ICD-9-CM Codes that Support Medical Necessity:
The Susceptibility studies test is determined to be medically necessary by Medicare only when it is ordered for patients with one of the conditions listed below. ICD-9CM codes that support medical necessity are listed, but it is not enough to link the procedure code to a correct payable ICD-9-CM code. The diagnosis must be present

Syphilis (L29416) 1 of 2
Data Source: http://www.cms.gov
CPT Codes 86592, 86593 and 86780
LCD Description: The fluorescent treponemal antibody absorption (FTA-abs) test is the most widely employed treponemal test. It is a specific test for
the diagnosis of syphilis. The FTA-abs test includes a serum specimen which is absorbed and then tested with immunofluorescence for the antibody to
Treponema pallidum, the causative agent of syphilis.
FTA-abs is the most sensitive test in all stages of syphilis. The FTA-abs test is of value principally in determining whether a positive nontreponemal
antigen test (e.g., Rapid Plasma Reagin [RPR] or Venereal Disease Research Laboratory [VDRL]) is “false positive” or is indicative of syphilis. Because
of its great sensitivity, particularly in the late stages of the disease, the FTA-abs test is also of value when there is clinical evidence of syphilis but the
nontreponemal serologic test for syphilis is negative. The test is positive in most patients with primary syphilis and in virtually all with secondary syphilis.
ICD-9-CM Codes that Support Medical Necessity: The Fluorescent Treponemal Antibody Absorption test is determined to be medically necessary by
Medicare only when it is ordered for patients with one of the conditions listed below. ICD-9-CM codes that support medical necessity are listed, but it is

Total Calcium (L29292) 1 of 3
Data Source: http://www.cms.gov
CPT Code 82310
LCD Description: Calcium is a predominantly extracellular cation. It is of great importance in blood coagulation; it gives firmness and rigidity to bones
and teeth; it is important in acid-base balance; it is essential for lactation; it is important in activating enzymes; it is essential for the function of nerves
and muscles, including the myocardium; and for maintaining the permeability of membranes. Over 98% of body’s calcium is found in the bones and
teeth. The serum calcium test is used to evaluate parathyroid function and calcium metabolism by directly measuring the total amount of calcium in the
blood. About 50% of blood calcium is ionized; the rest is protein bound (with albumin). The serum calcium level is a measurement of both. The normal
adult serum calcium level is between 8.5-10.5mg/dl.
ICD-9-CM Codes that Support Medical Necessity: The Total Calcium test is determined to be medically necessary by Medicare only when it is
ordered for patients with one of the conditions listed below. ICD-9-CM codes that support medical necessity are listed, but it is not enough to link the
procedure code to a correct payable ICD-9-CM code. The diagnosis must be present for the procedure to be paid and the procedure must be
reasonable and medically necessary for that diagnosis. Documentation within the patient’s medical record must support the medical necessity for the
test(s) provided.

Medicare Local Coverage Determination Policy – Florida
Vitamin D; 25 Hydroxy, includes Fraction(s) if performed (L30868)
CPT Code 82306
Data Source: http://www.cms.gov
LCD Description:
Vitamin D, a group of fat-soluble prohormones, is an essential vitamin. There are two major types of Vitamin D (Vitamin D2 and Vitamin D3)
which are collectively known as calciferol. They are essential for promoting calcium absorption and maintaining adequate serum calcium and
phosphate concentrations to enable mineralization of bone and prevent hypocalcemic conditions. Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) is obtained from
foods of plant origin and vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is obtained from foods of animal origin and ultraviolet light-stimulated conversion of 7dehydrocholestral in the skin. Vitamin D is stored in the human body as calcidiol (25-hydroxyvitamin D). Serum concentration of 25(OH) D is
the best indicator of vitamin D status.
Vitamin D deficiencies are the result of dietary inadequacy, impaired absorption and use, increased requirement, or increased excretion.
Vitamin D deficiency can occur when usual intake is lower than recommended levels over a period of time, or when exposure to sunlight is
limited. Vitamin D deficiency can also result from the inability of the kidneys to convert the vitamin D to its active form. Vitamin D toxicity can
cause symptoms including nausea, vomiting, poor appetite, constipation, weakness, and weight loss as well as elevation in the blood level of
calcium which in turn can lead to mental status changes, and heart rhythm abnormalities.
ICD-9-CM Codes that Support Medical Necessity: The Vitamin D test is determined to be medically necessary by Medicare only when it
is ordered for patients with one of the conditions listed below. ICD-9-CM codes that support medical necessity are listed, but it is not enough
to link the procedure code to a correct payable ICD-9-CM code. The diagnosis must be present for the procedure to be paid and the
procedure must be reasonable and medically necessary for that diagnosis. Documentation within the patient’s medical record must support
the medical necessity for the test(s). This list was compiled from the Medicare National Coverage Determination Policy. An ICD-D-9-CM
book should be used as a complete reference.
