SINCE MOST BX PLANS SHOW 64450 AS INVESTIGATIONAL. IS IT BETTER TO JUST NOT BILL THIS CODE AND ONLY BILL FOR THE 20551 ?
SuperCoder Posted 1 Year(s) ago

Greetings from SuperCoder.com!

 

There is CCI edit between codes 64450 and 20551 but a modifier is allowed. You should append modifier 59 with 20551 while billing both codes together on the same DOS if diagnoses support.

 

Please feel free to write if you have any concern or questions.

 

Thanks.
