My understanding is that in the State of Nevada Family Planning is separately billable. I have been told to attach a modifier to the CPT code 99401 to receive payment. Assuming the 99401 is being billed with a 99384, how should I bill this?

You would attach modifier 'FP' to CPT code 99401.

That is the code that I have used for years and for some reason 99401 is now being denied. Can you think of any other reason?

We suggest you contact the agency/insurance who is suddenly denying 99401 and ask for their explanation.
