Use additional code

Julia Posted Tue 06th of October, 2015 11:45:30 AM

Hello,
My question is regarding the direction of "use additional code". When coding for Pathology we do not always have this information. Are we required to use additional code and if so, what do we do when we do not have that information? If we do not use additional code will our claims be denied?

Thanks for your question.

If there is need to "use additional code" for correct coding and the information is missing from the report, you should query from your provider and if we do not use additional code where it is required, may be your claim will deny or it will affect you reimbursement
