64613
« on: September 25, 2011, 09:28:00 AM »
Hi- I am new to this for forum. I am billing for a Neurology practice in NY.
Can some one please tell me if Medicare is paying procedure code 64613 as a bilaterally procedure.
It seem like after April 2011. Medicare is no longer approving the procedure for payment if I use the 50 modifier.It is also happening with Blue Cross Blue Shield. Can anyone suggest how to get around this? Thanks

Michele

I couldn't find any information on this.  Have you contacted Medicare to ask them to point you to the documentation regarding this in the NCD/LCD?  That is where I would start.
