Hello, I need confirmation that we are billing correctly on a patient that was re-injured during the post op period.
Dos: 4-1-15 billed:
99222 57 dx 719.45
27130 LT dx 820.02 & 715.15 ***these charges have been paid***
**patient reinjured and was seen in the ER
Dos: 6-19-15 billed:
99282 24,57 dx: 719.45 ***are modifiers correct on these 2 codes?***
27266 78 dx: 996.42
Patient was then admitted to inpatient.
Appreciate your input.
