Issues regarding 29881 29877 29870

Jessica Posted Fri 01st of April, 2011 15:54:43 PM

There seems to be an issue with the CCI Edits. I entered 29881, 29877, 29870. I know that 29881 and 29870 should definitely CCI out unless a modifier is used. They are not. It says that there are no bundling issues. I also tried 64483 and 77003, then 64493 and 77003. I get the same response from supercoder. I know that 77003 has been included in 64493 since last year and with 64483 it became inclusive Jan. 1st. Could you please look into this.

I can understand the potential in this question. This is what I observed after the 2nd quarter change today for the first time.
I noticed this as a major change from the findings from the last quarter, and I need to make a research into the possible logic behind this.

You can understand that efforts on getting logical info on such major change would consume a bit of time. I will be coming up with an answer ASAP.

Sarah, There seems to be a logic problem where the edits are pulling only the new 17.1 data and not the remaining 17.0 data. Our developers are working on the issue. Thank you for your patience.
