MEDICARE billing G0179& G0180
« on: March 13, 2012, 03:11:48 PM »
Need help with G0179 & G0180. Medicare used to pay for those codes, but for the past few month stoped. We are submitting claim for several times, but Medicare system says "no claim on file" even thought that the claim wasn't denied. Maybe they changed policy?????

have you checked online for your local coverage determination (LCD)?? if medicare updates or changes anything on a code, they have to publish it ---- but you should be able to search online or ask a representative......

I would call Medicare and ask them to point you to the document in the LCD/NCD regarding that code.  Just tell them that you are having trouble finding the information.  In most cases, (from my experience) they will assist you in locating the information.
