CPT code 92537

Marla Posted Mon 07th of March, 2016 14:11:38 PM

We are getting denials on the new CPT code 92537 stating that it cannot be billed under an audiologist NPI. Has anyone else been having this problem? They will pay for CPT code 92540 under an audiologist NPI but we are being told 92537 has to be billed incident to. This makes no sense as both of these tests are performed at the same time by our audiologist....any information would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

CPT code Caloric vestibular test with recording, bilateral; bithermal (ie, one warm and one cool irrigation in each ear for a total of four irrigations) can be billed under audiologist NPI.
