Metabolic acidosis

Our facility got an insurance denial on diagnosis of metabolic acidosis on the grounds that an anion gap test result showing elevation was not performed. Thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated!


  • I would calculate the anion gap and stick it in my appeal to appease them, arguing the acidosis regardless of the gap.  You can use MDcalc for a tool if you need one.
