Coding 36415 & 80050 together
« on: March 30, 2011, 01:54:48 PM »
I have an insurance company who is denying 36415 as inclusive to 80053 when I bill them together.  All other insurances pay these separately.  I have found nothing in the Coding book which will help me to definitively appeal the billing of these two codes together.  Can anyone help me with this?
Thanks!

Sounds like it may be a plan exclusion.  Have you spoken to a customer service rep?  I would start there.  If I don't like the explanation I would contact a provider rep to discuss.
