    POS for Well Visit performed at Work

    My physician performs annual well visits for the employees of a company at the work site. I assumed POS code 18 would be sufficient, however, it says to use no later than 05/01/2013. Is this POS code still billable? If not would the proper POS be 99?

    Physician Authorization for Inpatient/Observation Services

    Forgive my lack of knowledge! I'm more familiar with coding, and just now starting to get into working some denials!

    J0151 & J0152 Replacements???

    Does anyone know what codes to use for Adenosine. Previously I was told to use J0151 in place of the J0152, but J0151 has also been deleted and I have multiple denials from different insurances. What are we supposed to bill for Adenosine?

    I had this issue as well but was informed from multiple sources to use A9270. Has anyone else heard to use this as the replacement? :confused:
