94729

Sharleen Posted Wed 25th of April, 2012 14:04:52 PM

This code states that 94729 is an add on code and is billed with your selection of primary codes specific to 94729. Can 94729 be billed out by it self ??

That doesn't comply with Coding Guidelines. CPT 94729 should not be billed without a Primary Procedure. If you are billing this way, and if you are geting payment (as an error from Insurance), then you are likely to face a refund request from Insurance in future at any point of time of all the previoius paid claims.

Please find ways and means of documenting the procedures and treatment guidelines for your practice so as to bill 94729 as an "Add-On" code with corresponding "Primary Procedures".
