Help with Billing 11719 and 11721 together

Hello,

I need some help as I am fairly new to podiatry billing.

I billed:

11721-59

11719-Q8

Result:

11721-59 denied code B15

11719-Q8 approved, paid


Question:

Why was 11721-59 denied?

How would I bill both codes in one claim?



Any insight is much appreciated.

Thank you.

Its a mutually exclusive NCCI edit and modifier cannot be used to bypass the edit.

[FONT=&quot]Edit exists with 11719. 11721 is a Column 2 code. If both 11719 and 11721 are submitted, only 11719 will be paid.[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]- [/FONT][FONT=&quot]This edit CANNOT be overridden via CCI-associated modifiers.[/FONT]
