Is There A Dx Code For Sx That Fail And Have To Be Repeated?


Best answers
; I have a provider that performs cpt px 92585, comprehensive ABR's frequently on young children. Often the child won't cooperate or is "squirmy" and the test fails. The audiologist performs the whole test, does all the work involved, and yet because the test fails she has to perform it again. Is there a diagnostic code for the failed test so that when she bills the next attempted test she will get payed?

Thank you, Tamera Wilcox

What about 76 modifier, repeat procedure by the same provider?
You can always send in with notes showing documentation of the failure on the exam.
