medical billing and coding

posted by .

This 35-year-old female patient has carcinoma of the upper-outer left breast. She had a lumpectomy performed and a sentinel lymph node biopsy of the axillary lymph node. The pathology report for the lymph node states no pathological change. What codes are assigned in this case?
ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Code(s) with POA Indicator: 233.0-Y
ICD 9-CM Procedure code(s): 85.21 G8878
ICD 10-CM Code(s): C50.412
ICD 10-PCS Code(s): 07B43ZZ
ICD 10-PCS Note: Assign only the procedure codes for the lumpectomy and excision of left axillary lymph node for biopsy.

Can someone please check my work!!

    I'm not aware of any of our tutors who have expertise in all this coding information. You'll need to depend on your instructional materials and/or form a study group among your classmates ... and yes, even if it's an online class. There are ways to do that.

    233.oY is wrong

    233.0 IS CORRECT

    I would add ICD-9 Procedure code 40.11 for the biopsy of the lymph node. 85.21 is only the procedure for the lumpectomy. Right?

    don't code the 40.11, the correct code is as you posted G8878
