Harvest and implantation of bone marrow aspirate denials


Best answers

Does anyone have any experience with how to bill for bone marrow harvesting for transplantation with Medical Mutual of Ohio? Our podiatrists have been submitting code 38232, however these claims are coming back denied as service not payable for rendering provider specialty. I've called MMO and I've been advised that neither 38232 or 38220 are payable to this specialty. If anyone knows how to get our providers paid for this service your help would be greatly appreciated.
