Medicare Remark Code M16 for 73221 w/TC Modifier

Tania Posted Sat 29th of January, 2011 23:54:21 PM

I'm getting Remark M16 from Medicare and a reduced payment when billing MRI CPT 73221 with TC Modifier. I cannot locate the correct definition for this remark code.

Any input would be helpful.

Please to the Medicare rep that M16 is a Deactivated Remark code without any replacement code from 2004. How can a deactivated remark code will in a Medicare statement now ?
