What ICD-10 Codes are Used for Elevated PSA?

Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is a protein produced by the prostate gland. Elevated levels can be a sign of prostate cancer but can also indicate other prostate-related conditions. Correct coding of elevated PSA is essential for patient care, further testing, and insurance reimbursement. The ICD-10-CM system provides specific codes for elevated PSA.

Commonly Used ICD-10-CM Codes for Elevated PSA:

R97.20 - Elevated prostate-specific antigen [PSA]

Clinical Description: This is a general code for increased PSA levels, irrespective of the cause.

(Note: While there are other ICD-10-CM codes related to prostate disorders, R97.20 is the primary code specifically for elevated PSA levels. Depending on the clinical context and findings, additional codes may be used to further specify the patient's condition.)
