We are now having trouble with AARP medicare complete paying for Rocephin.  It didn't use to be a problem.  I always billed J0696 time 4 for 1 gram.  Now they are denying saying that  Payer deems the information submitted does not support this dosage.  Any ideas

If it is only AARP Medicare Complete and you are not receiving any denials from any other carriers then I would contact AARP Medicare Complete to ask them what changed.  It does not appear to be a national change as I don't see anything out there indicating it is a problem.  It looks like it is carrier specific.  They may have changed something on how they want it reported or it may be a mistake.
