Trying to find on Medicare's website the ICD 10 codes that are compatible with 20551.
Thank you.

re: 20551

Rose,
Things can be difficult to find on the Medicare website, however the Find-A-Code website has the crosswalk information you're looking for and gets the information from LCDs, NCDs, and coverage articles from Medicare. As a general rule though, you should code the procedure according to the diagnosis and not the other way around to ensure there is medical necessity for the procedure, and to decrease your claim denial rate.

To see the crosswalks for this code specifically create a free trial at Find-A-Code and follow this link: https://www.findacode.com/code.php?set=CPT&c=20551
