She performs a microscopic examination and gives documentation of hyperplasia of the glandular and surface epithelium with serrated architectures present. Diagnosis: cecum and ascending colon biopsies, mucosal (three): Hyperplasic polyps (three). Correct CPT and ICD-9-CM code(s) for the pathologist would be 88305, 211.3.

    Susan, on a beach with friends, lost her balance and fell into a flaming hibachi. Susan sustained multiple burns. Arriving at the ER, the ER doctor treated her for 1st and 2nd degree burns on her face, and 2nd and third degree burns on her forearms and elbows. The doctor recorded the total body surface involved was 14%; 9% had 3rd degree burns. What are the ICD-9-CM codes?

    • A.

      943.31, 943.32, 943.21, 943.22, 941.20, 941.10, 948.10, E897

    • B.

      943.39, 941.20, 948.10, E899

    • C.

      943.39, 941.20, 948.10, E897

    • D.

      946.3, 948.10, E897

    Correct Answer
    C. 943.39, 941.20, 948.10, E897
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 943.39, 941.20, 948.10, E897. The ICD-9-CM codes are used to classify and code diagnoses and procedures in medical settings. In this case, the codes indicate the specific diagnoses and injuries that Susan sustained. 943.39 represents the third-degree burns on her forearms and elbows, 941.20 represents the second-degree burns on her face, 948.10 represents the first-degree burns on her face, and E897 represents the cause of the injury, which in this case is an accident involving fire.

    Tom arrives for an office visit with Dr. Brown, his primary care physician for many years, for a simple suprapubic catheter change. He complains to his doctor about a feeling of weakness or pressure in the groin and achiness in that area. His doctor performs the catheter change w/o imaging guidance and also does a problem focused history and exam with straight forward MDM. The diagnosis is inguinal hernia for left side. What are the CPT code(s) for this visit?

    • A.

      51705, 99212-25

    • B.

      51705, 99212-24

    • C.

      51705, 75984, 49505, 99212-25

    • D.

      51705, 49505-LT, 99212

    Correct Answer
    A. 51705, 99212-25
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 51705, 99212-25. The CPT code 51705 represents the suprapubic catheter change, and the code 99212-25 represents the problem focused history and exam with straight forward MDM. This means that the doctor performed a simple suprapubic catheter change and also evaluated the patient's complaint of weakness or pressure in the groin and achiness in that area. The -25 modifier indicates that the evaluation and management service was separately identifiable from the catheter change procedure.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The correct answer is 99601 X13, 99602 X13, 99509 X9. This answer represents the charges for the nurse's services for a month. The nurse comes on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, which means there are 13 sessions of peritoneal dialysis (99601) and 13 sessions of assistance with laundry and personal care (99602). Additionally, there are 9 sessions of assistance with meals and personal care (99509). The charges for these services are multiplied by the number of sessions and added together to determine the total charge for the month.
