Medicare to cover prothrombin time test?:
This article was originally published in Clinica

The health plan currently covers the test to assess patients with signs or symptoms of haemorrhage or thrombosis. However, the list of ICD-9-CM codes covered by Medicare does not include 729.81, "swelling of limb". The agency is examining its current coverage policy.
