remove ingrown toenails

Karen Posted Tue 25th of September, 2012 21:49:11 PM

Patient came in with two ingrown toenails on both great toes. Billed Medicare CPT 11750 - 2 units - DX 729.5. Medicare denied "non covered services/not deemed medically necessary". Please let me know how to correct. Thank you.

You should use 703.0 as the covered Dx for this instead of 729.5
