I have a person who was seen and E&M code was 90791 with dx code 296.90. Not sure why this was denied. Could someone maybe have a better insight on this? Thanks!
Maybe the carrier has a policy preventing the payment, other than that I don't see why it was denied. The diagnosis is cross walked with the procedure, unless the procedure was billed with a column 2. Also, I agree with Debra that the DOS for the code should be prior to 10/1/2015 due to ICD-10 being implemented.

I thought I had replied but must have been filtered out to a link I posted. First thought as above was is this DOS prior to 10/1 due to the diagnosis. The other issue is were other services billed the same day by providers in the same group. I had found a nice link from Optum discussing this code and clinical edits. One example is this cannot be billed with therapy on the same day as the eval
