INTRODUCTION
The Importance of Diagnosis Codes
In today's regulated healthcare climate, diagnosis codes are mandatory. When
requisitions arrive without a valid and covered code or a signed waiver (if
necessary), the Lab might not be reimbursed for our services. Please assist us
by providing this required information at the time you order the test. if you have
any questions regarding this issue, please contact your service representative
or your billing coordinator.
The Balanced Budget Act of 1997 requires physicians to provide diagnostic or
other medical information when ordering services furnished by another entity in
order for payment to be made to the entity furnishing the service. Colorado
Laboratory Services (CLS) is not allowed to determine what code should be
used for the laboratory services. Only the ordering physician/authorized
provider is authorized to determine the reason that the test is ordered. CLS is
also not allowed to routinely accept orders where Advance Beneficiary Notices
(ABNs) are not collected when necessary, or routinely write off tests where an
ABN is not obtained. This may be considered "inducement" under government
regulations. However, to assist the physician's office in determining whether an
ABN may be needed, CLS provides ABN assistance through our website
www.clslaboratory.com which will help the physician's staff to determine
whether an ABN is required. In addition, CLS provides electronic access to
National and Local Coverage Decision (NCD and LCD) information.
We are pleased to provide various tools designed to help you. These include
staff training, waiver (ABN) forms, waiting room signs, etc.

Key Points for Diagnosis Coding
All requisitions must provide proof of “medical necessity” for each test ordered in the
form of ICD-9 codes, narrative diagnoses or symptoms.
If the alpha-numeric “ICD-9” code is not known, a narrative diagnosis (full
description or abbreviation) may be written on the requisition.
Example: If the patient's chart indicates atrial fibrillation, but the ICD-9 (427.31) is not known, writing“AFib” on the requisition is acceptable.
**IMPORTANT NOTE: If the patient has Medicare coverage and a Limited Coverage Test is ordered,
the patient will have to sign an Advance Beneficiary Notice (ABN) if only a narrative is provided.
Diagnosis codes can either be actual diagnoses, current symptoms or abnormal test
results.
Example: The patient has been diagnosed w/ hypothyroidism and the provider orders a TSH,
hypothyroidism (244.9) would be the appropriate diagnosis (ICD-9) assigned.
Example: The patient has been experiencing fatigue and weight gain. The provider wants to run a TSH
to see if the patient is hypothyroid. In this case, fatigue (780.79) and weight gain (783.1) would be the
appropriate narratives or codes to assign.
Example: The patient’s lab results come back w/ an elevated glucose (790.29), a low HCT (285.9) and
an abnormality of their UA (791.9). As a result, the provider adds on a Glycohemoglobin (HgbA1C), an
Iron or Ferritin and a Urine Culture. Therefore the “medical necessity” is proven in the abnormal labs (be
specific), not the original diagnosis. This, again, can be given as either a narrative diagnosis or an ICD9 code.
“RULE OUT”, “POSSIBLE” or “SUSPECTED” are not codeable descriptions.
In the above example, rather than considering "ruling out" hypothyroidism, the symptoms which are
causing the provider to believe that this might be the problem, i.e. fatigue and weight gain, should be
provided.
V58.61 is for anticoagulant monitoring and V58.69 is for monitoring of other
medications. These codes are acceptable by Medicare, but they cannot be
interchanged.
When ordering Medication Levels it is still necessary to provide a medically
necessary diagnosis, symptom or “med monitoring” code (V58.61, V58.69).
Although it may be obvious that the patient is on medication, Medicare does not allow
turning a test order into an ICD-9 code.

Successful Laboratory Requisitions, Medicare Billing
The following Medicare billing requirements will assist you to
accurately complete laboratory requisitions. The objective is to
minimize recurring phone calls to our valued clients and service
center employees. Thank you for your attention to detail.
When billing Medicare, the following italicized information is always
required on the laboratory requisition. The additional information is
essential for accurate billing.
1. Patient's full name
2. Patient's sex
3. Patient's date of birth
4. Patient's phone number
5. Patient's full address
6. Ordering provider full name
7. Ordering provider signature
8. Date and time of collection and fasting status
9. Who is to be billed (circle Medicare)
10. Patient's Social Security Number (optional)
11. Insurance ID number (Medicare HIC # + Prefix or suffix
character(s))
12. Marked Test(s) being ordered with appropriate and valid ICD9 for every test ordered
13. When indicated, a signed and dated ABN-with test(s) listed,
reason(s) specified for possible denial and estimated cost of
test(s) with the patient checking the option desired and the
patient signing and dating the ABN.

Documentation Requests, Medicare Billing
We, as the Laboratory, perform tests requested for your patients who have Medicare.
We are required, by law, to provide documentation if requested by the Comprehensive
Error Rate Testing (CERT) program by CMS. CERT reviews claims, on a postpayment review of claims, submitted by our laboratory. These claims could be audited
for documentation to support the rendering/billing provider indicated on the claim.
During the audit process, if documentation is needed, the physician or supplier (lab)
must provide the required documentation within the deadlines stipulated in the written
request from CERT.
The lab receives these CERT requests and must request patient records, progress
notes, etc. from the physician’s office and/or clinic. Therefore, it is critical for each
office/clinic to understand that we have time limits to receive this information and must
respond to Medicare within the timeframe given to the laboratory. Upon receipt of
documentation, CERT reviews the claims and medical records from the
providers/suppliers who submitted the claims, reviewing the claims for compliance
with Medicare coverage, coding, and billing rules.
Below are the guidelines from Medicare to assist in documentation and provide
guidance to follow when ordering Laboratory tests.
Documentation Guidelines for Medicare Services
This article is being revised and reprinted from "Medicare B News," Issue 236 dated
April 17, 2007, to ensure that the Noridian Adminstrative Services (NAS) provider and
supplier community has access to recent publications that contain the most current,
accurate and effective information available.
Medical records should be complete, legible, and include the following information:
• Reason for encounter, relevant history, findings, test results, and date of service.
• Assessment and impression of diagnosis.
• Plan of care with date and legible identity of the observer.
• Documentation that supports that the rendering/billing provider indicated on the claim
is the healthcare professional providing the service. (*Note)
• Records should not only substantiate the service performed, but also the required
level of care.
If the physician uses a scribe (an individual taking notes), the scribe needs to fully sign
the note, with their own credentials, followed by the physician’s signature and
credentials.
6
April 2013
Documentation Requests, Medicare Billing
* Note: Medicare needs to identify primary physicians/practitioners of a service not
only for use in standard claims transactions, but also for review, fraud detection, and
planning policies. In order to accomplish this, NAS (Noridian Administration Services)
must be able to determine and verify the rendering physician/practitioner for each
outpatient service billed to Medicare. It is very important that the individual(s)
performing a billed service is/are identified.
By law, Medicare contractors [Medicare Administrative Contractors (MAC) Part B
Carriers and Medicare Administrative Contractors (MAC) Part A Fiscal Intermediaries]
can review any information, including medical records, pertaining to a Medicare claim.
Providers billing Medicare for their services must act in accordance with the following
conditions:
• Document in appropriate office records and/or hospital records each time a covered
Medicare service is provided or ordered. In the case of laboratory test orders, the
exact name of the test(s) being ordered needs to be in the patient's medical record.
When providing concurrent care for hospital or custodial care facility patients,
physicians should identify their specialty in order to help support the necessity. Write
medical information legibly and sign each entry with a legible signature, or ensure that
the provider’s/author’s/observer’s identity is present and legible.
Medical information should be clear, concise, and reflect the patient's condition.
Sign progress notes for hospital and custodial care facility patients with all entries
dated and signed by the healthcare provider who actually examined the patient.
Provide sufficient detail to support diagnostic tests that were furnished and the level of
care billed.
Do not use statements such as “same as above” or ditto marks (“). This is not
acceptable documentation that the service was provided on that date. The “burden of
proof” remains with the provider to substantiate services and/or supplies billed to
Medicare. During the audit process, if documentation is needed, the physician or
supplier must provide the required documentation within the deadlines stipulated in
7

Advance Beneficiary Notice, Medicare Billing
The Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1986 (OBRA)
included a limitation of liability (or waiver of liability) provision
that provided beneficiaries with protection from liability when
they, in good faith, receive services from a Medicare provider
for which Medicare payment is subsequently denied as not
"reasonable and necessary."
Please provide an ICD-9
code for each test
ordered for Medicare
patients.
An Advance Beneficiary Notice (ABN) should be obtained
whenever a provider has reason to believe a procedure could
be denied as not reasonable and necessary. Generally,
services necessitating a signed ABN are those that are
payable in some instances, but not payable in others. These
can include:
Screening Tests
Tests that might be ordered as part of a routine exam (when
the patient does not exhibit evidence of a particular disease)
are not covered.
Experimental ("Investigational") Tests
Tests designated by the manufacturer as "for research or
investigational use," and thus considered experimental or
investigational, are also not covered by Medicare.
Tests Performed Too Frequently
Tests that are performed more frequently
recommended by Medicare are not covered.
than
is
Laboratory tests for which Medicare has established either a
National Coverage Decision (NCD) or for which a Medicare
Administrative Contractor (MAC) has established a Local
Coverage Decision (LCD).
Tests Not Medically Necessary
Tests that are not medically necessary for a diagnosis or
condition - in Medicare's opinion - are not covered.
Laboratory tests that are specifically excluded by the Medicare
program. (e.g., General Health Panels)
8
April 2013
Advance Beneficiary Notice, Medicare Billing
Please provide the laboratory with a valid Advance
Beneficiary Notice when you have reason to believe
Medicare may deny a procedure as 'medically
unnecessary.'
The procedure for obtaining a Medicare waiver (ABN) is based
on the current list of tests for which Medicare requires an
ICD9 code to consider payment. Please refer to the "Current
Lab Services That Require Proof of Medical Necessity" list. Do
not obtain a Medicare waiver (ABN) for every Medicare
patient, but only for those who may be held liable for the
service.
Medicare is very specific about what elements are required on
an ABN for it to be considered valid. Absence of any of the
required elements invalidates that ABN and is the same as no
ABN at all. Medicare is also very specific about format and
appearance of the ABN. Please take a moment to review the
ABN that follows. The following must be completed on each
ABN obtained:
1. Patient Name
2. Date of Birth or other unique identifier as Identification
Number. Must not use Medicare numbers (HICNs) or SSN.
3. Specific tests the patient was advised could be denied must
be listed in the appropriate column.
4. The reason these tests may be denied must be listed in the
appropriate column.
5. The estimated cost of the test(s), to the best of your
knowledge, must be provided in the appropriate column.
6. Once the information is recorded, ask the patient to read, and
then check Option 1, Option 2, and or Option 3. The patient
must do this.
7. Patient must sign the ABN.
8. Patient must date the ABN.

The ABN Request Program
Please provide the laboratory with a valid Advance
Beneficiary Notice when you have reason to believe
Medicare may deny a procedure as 'medically
unnecessary.'
CLS provides ABN assistance through our website
www.clslaboratory.com.com. This program will determine if
an ABN is necessary without the need to look through a book
or manual. How to use it:
1. Go to our website and click on ABN Request.
2. Select the entity where the testing will be performed. The Bill
Class field should automatically populate with the appropriate
code for that entity.
3. Enter our workpar (or ?test name, if unknown) for each and
every test the provider has ordered in the first box. Separate
the workpars with a comma or vertical bar leaving no spaces
between characters.
4. Specific tests the patient was advised could be denied must
be listed in the appropriate column.
5. In the second box, enter the ICD-9 codes provided on the
requisition, using the same separators with no spaces
between characters.
6. Click on the Medical Necessity button. The program will
inform you if the test/s require an ABN. If required, an ABN
must be printed out.
7. Enter the patient’s name and date of birth into the appropriate
fields and click on the Generate Printable ABN button. The
ABN will have the patient’s name, date of birth, and the cost of
the testing listed.
8. Print out the ABN and explain it to the patient.
9. Have the patient check Option 1, 2 or 3, and then the patient
must date and sign the form.

Medicare Secondary Payer
Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) refers to those instances in
which Medicare does not have the primary responsibility for
paying the medical expenses for a Medicare beneficiary.
All Providers should screen Medicare patients to obtain
correct and current health insurance information before
submitting a primary claim to Medicare.
By completing the MSP Questionnaire to initially screen your
Medicare patients, you will help reduce costs to the Medicare
Program as well as administrative costs to your practice.
Requisitions provided to the laboratory should reflect accurate
patient insurance information, including screening for
Medicare Secondary Payer. Laboratory Patient Service Center
employees will provide Medicare Secondary Payer screening
when performing phlebotomy on Medicare beneficiaries.
Physician offices that are unable to provide Medicare
Secondary Payer screening are encouraged to direct their
patients to our Patient Service Centers for this vital
requirement of the Medicare Program.

Hepatitis Screening Limitations, United Healthcare (UHC)
UHC has implemented a Hepatitis Screening testing policy and has greatly reduced the
number of ICD9 codes that they will now cover. This is effective April 1, 2012.
It is the provider’s responsibility to select diagnosis codes carried out to the highest level
of specificity and selected from the ICD-9-CM code book appropriate to the year in which
the service is rendered for the claim(s) submitted.
UHC's Hepatitis Screening policy should be retained as a reference, but remember that
every code provided on the lab order must be substantiated in the patient’s chart.
United’s policy can be reviewed in its entirety at:

***LIPID PANEL FREQUENCY LIMITATION*** NCD 190.23 Summary for Lipid Testing
Routine screening is generally not covered by Medicare
Borderline high total or LDL cholesterol levels: Lipid panel is reasonable on an
annual basis.
First year of anti-lipid dietary or pharmacologic therapy.
* One component of the panel or a measured LDL may be reasonable up to 6
times the first year.
* When documentation supports marked elevations or changes in anti-lipid
therapy due to inadequate initial patient response to dietary or pharmacologic
therapy, more frequent total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and
triglyceride testing may be indicated.
* After treatment goals are established: LDL cholesterol or total cholesterol may
be measured three times yearly.
Long-term anti-lipid dietary or pharmacologic therapy: Lipid panel is reasonable
on an annual basis.
If no dietary or pharmacologic therapy is advised, monitoring is not necessary.
When evaluating non-specific chronic abnormalities of the liver, lipid panel would
generally not be indicated more than twice per year.

Non-covered ICD-9-CM Codes for All NCD Edits, Medicare Billing
Per Medicare: 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.
The individual ICD-9-CM codes included in code ranges in the table below can be viewed
on CMS’ website under Downloads: Lab Code List. The link is:

National Coverage Decision November 25, 2002
* Per Medicare, www.cms.gov, it is not considered reasonable and necessary to perform glycated
hemoglobin tests more often than every three months on a controlled diabetic patient to determine
whether the patient's metabolic control has been on average within the target range. It is not
considered reasonable and necessary for these tests to be performed more frequently than once a
month for diabetic pregnant women. Testing for uncontrolled type one or two diabetes mellitus may
require testing more than four times a year. Refer to CMS guidelines for the clinical basis for those
situations in which testing more frequently than four times per annum is indicated. Medical
necessity documentation must support such testing in excess of the above guidelines.
