outpatient discharge code 99217
« on: February 15, 2010, 07:14:37 PM »
My doctor billed a 99217 and Medicare denied it because another doctor's claim beat ours in.  How do I get payment for this claim?

You had previously posted this question and I responded with the following:

"Are you saying another dr performed the same service?  If so, they are only going to allow one.


Not enough info for anyone to really help.  You would need to provide more details.
