Medicare denial of 94010

Michelle Posted Tue 12th of May, 2015 10:44:27 AM

Medicare just recently started denying 94010 when billed with an office visit E/M code with a -25 modifier. What has changed? (Example: 99213-25 and 94010)

Their is no such guidelines of not getting paid for 94010 when billed with appropriate E/M code. Please check with your Insurance. CCI Edits shows bundling of E/M code 99213 into 94010. Use -25 modifier, if your document support significant separately identifiable service.
