We use 94060, 94726, 94729. We also use 85018. We use no modifiers.

Dena: Have you been paid for using the above codes???

Dena Answered Tue 31st of January, 2012 23:36:46 PM

Yes we have. We started using them January 1st. We first made the mistake of billing the 94726 and 94727. We couldn't get those to pay together. This combination seems to pay and our doctors feel is it appropriate for the services rendered.
