Naturopathic Code(s)
« on: April 25, 2022, 06:53:25 PM »
Hello - I've recently rebilled 1 line item for a Naturopath that Blue Cross refuses to pay on. It is: 98926 (Medicine / osteopathic manipulative treatment) This code was paid on in the past, but now it does not pay. The EOB says: This should be billed with the appropriate code for these services. May I ask...how does one find the "appropriate code" for these services?? I've called customer service multiple times, and they said they do not give out coding advise. Any suggestions? ???

The codes used were: G47.00, R09.81, M54.30, M25.551, M25.552, M54.50 / As I said, one or more of these codes were "inconsistent" with procedure code 98926 according to the insurance co. Should one or more of these be left out? Is a modifier needed? The insurance co. won't say. Any suggestions would be welcome.

For Osteopathic Manipulation you must use dxs in the M99.01-M99.09 range.  I believe that is the issue.
