Title: Code 36556 to Medicare
Post by: pweinstein on January 08, 2009, 10:34:33 AM
Are there certain specifics to getting code 36556 paid by Upstate Medicare.  I am billing in NY.  Medicare is denying my claims saying service is not paid seperately.  I am also billing codes 93503 and 36620 as well as the primary procedure of 00562.  I am billing for anesthesia.  Thanks for all your help.

I haven't come across this in my billing but I found an article that might help you out.
