Title: Medicare denial code CO-112
Post by: mstilger on October 14, 2011, 02:20:23 PM
Hi everyone,

I do all the Medicare billing for our cooperation! I have been a Medicare Rep for about 10 years and I have never seen this denial code before. Can some please explain to me what it means.
Thanks
Michele

Well CO 112 means payment adjusted as not furnished directly to the patient and/or not documented.  I'm assuming you are billing for Durable Medical Equipment.

No this is an assistant surgeon charge for Complete Excision Tarsal Bone.

Wow that's strange.  That denial is usually seen with DME.  Are there other denial codes in addition to that one?  I would call Medicare to ask for an explanation.
