Title: CPT CODE 99383 DX Z00.129
Post by: billspecial01 on January 22, 2018, 09:06:57 PM
Hi I bill for a family practice. We are having an issue with Texas Medicaid (acute care) paying for our preventive visits 99383 with DX z00.129. The denial reason states preventive care not covered under patients plan, elig states it is. Is there another CPT code or dx we should use? Thank you

Have you tried to contact them?  If it is showing as a covered benefit and then denying it sounds like a system issue.  I do show that CPT & DX code are valid with TX Medicaid.

Could it be they are only required one? Perhaps another visit was done by another provider? I know that happens with us here in NY sometimes.
