Is a billing code of 710.0 for the insurance a firm diagnosis or could it be used to justify an ANA panel ? Thanks !

In brief: Labs

Unfortunately, insurance requires codes to justify testing and there is no way to say that an ANA panel is being run for testing for possible lupus or other diseases.
We run tests for many possibilities, not just firm diagnoses.
