190.30 - Tumor Antigen by Immunoassay CA 19-9
Description
Immunoassay determinations of the serum levels of certain proteins or carbohydrates serve as
tumor markers. When elevated, serum concentration of these markers may reflect tumor size
and grade. This policy specifically addresses the following tumor antigen: CA19-9.

Code Description
C78.89 Secondary malignant neoplasm of other digestive organs
D37.6 Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of liver, gallbladder and bile ducts
D37.8 Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of other specified digestive organs
D37.9 Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of digestive organ, unspecified

Z85.068 Personal history of other malignant neoplasm of small intestine

Z85.09 Personal history of malignant neoplasm of other digestive organs
Indications
Multiple tumor markers are available for monitoring the response of certain malignancies to
therapy and assessing whether residual tumor exists post-surgical therapy.
Levels are useful in following the course of patients with established diagnosis of pancreatic and
biliary ductal carcinoma. The test is not indicated for diagnosing these two diseases.
Limitations
These services are not covered for the evaluation of patients with signs or symptoms suggestive
of malignancy. The service may be ordered at times necessary to assess either the presence of
recurrent disease or the patient's response to treatment with subsequent treatment cycles.
ICD-10-CM Codes That Do Not Support Medical Necessity
Any ICD-10-CM code not listed in either of the ICD-10-CM covered or non-covered sections.

Are Cancer Registrars ready for ICD-10? Currently, there is no requirement for ICD-10-PCS training. Cancer registrars who don't maintain AHIMA credentials don't need ICD-10-specific credit hours, but it is strongly recommended that they familiarize themselves with the code set. Unfortunately, medical coder classes likely are more in-depth than what's necessary for registrars.
