92612 FEES
« on: April 23, 2014, 07:57:17 AM »
I'm having issues getting my provider paid for 92612 in Kansas for Medicare.  The Medicare guide states FEES can be performed by an SLP but every appeal I have sent they send back with just a definition of what a physician is.  Has anybody else had this issue or can you give me some pointers to get these paid?  Thanks.

Thank you.  We've tried the GN modifier as well.  I've written appeals etc and we never get a response other than the definition of what a physician is.  Medicare removed the physician requirement over a year ago.

I found an LCD on this for your jurisdiction and everything you're saying is right (http://www.cms.gov/medicare-coverage-database/details/lcd-details.aspx?LCDId=33065&ContrId=148).

Are you using the functional limitation reporting codes? And are you including the referral from a PECOS-enrolled MD? Those are the only reasons I can think of for them having an issue with what a physician is, and they are new changes as of this year which might explain why the denials from your contractor aren't very specific.

Thank you.  I'll take a look and see what we sent as we have appealed several of these but I like what you had to say about the referral as I'm not sure there was one listed.  Thanks again.

No problem. Here is the full policy document on the referring provider requirements for reference: http://www.cms.gov/Outreach-and-Education/Medicare-Learning-Network-MLN/MLNMattersArticles/Downloads/SE1305.pdf
