Title: J0585 Botox for Migraines
Post by: nlbarnes64 on March 26, 2014, 05:43:47 PM
We billed Medicare for J0585 qty 3.  2 were denied.  Can anyone tell me why & the guidelines please?

I can't believe they don't cover acupuncture OR cold laser therapy at this point.

I know right!  They cover hyponotherapy but not acupunture.
