Title: Denied Claim for Bundling
Post by: sbjilly on November 04, 2009, 04:18:19 PM
I am new to this website, so please forgive me if this has been discussed before. I am also a self-taught biller, and so far have had much success with being paid for claims I have submitted. I work for a solo practioneer and recently gave a patient a superbill to send to their provider. The format I used included the DOS, ICD-9 codes (792.21, 627.2, and 272.4) and the CPT code 99214. The claim was denied with the following: Claims Denied (4599) - No benefits due to coding/bundling servcs (SEL 2 & 3). Can anyone tell me what I did wrong. Much appreciation.

Was 99214 the only procedure on the claim?

If 99214 was the only code billed then it doesn't make any sense that they are denying stating bundling.  I would call customer service and ask them for an explanation.
