Title: CPT 96372
Post by: cturner on January 29, 2009, 09:42:19 AM
I was wondering if anyone else was having a problem with Medicare denying CPT 96372 (the new CPT that replaced 90772)?  Every time we bill an Injection Fee (96372) with an Office Level (99212-99215), it is being denied as Global.  The new CCI edits state that 96372 it is bundled with Office Visit Levels, but it states that a modifier is allowed to differentiate between the CPTs.  We used modifier -59, but when we called Medicare they told us that Modifier -59 was not appropriate & that we could rebill with an appropriate modifier.  We are not aware of any other Modifiers that would be appropriate to use.  Any suggestions?

You could try the 25 modifier on the E&M code.  I'm not sure what else.
