When billing the discharge 99238 to BCBS they are rejecting this code stating it is included in the primary procedure (Hospital Stay) however this code is for the physician side.

Anyone have this situation or denial with them?

Thanks Amy, CPC CMBS CCP

Are you sure they are not considering it Global to a surgical procedure? That is usually the only time I see a "global to" denial.
