Hi, I have noticed Medicare is only paying cpt code 96372 for one unit. I have billed the office visit with modifier 25 along with multiple injections but they only pay for one administration fee. Any advice would be great! Thanks!

:D

Are you billing the 96372 showing a multiple quantity, or are you putting them on individual line items for each one?

it could be several issues.. first you are using a very general and unspecified diagnosis for a specific treatment. Second was this delivered IM or as a joint injection.

This is true. The doctors are very quick to pick a code with the least specificity. I have been working with them to improve this and to add more documentation.

The injections were given IM.

The documentation is very vague and doesn't specify much besides a fall. I will query the provider for clarification.

I do have amazing news, I just got a claim from Medicare that paid both administration fees with the modifier XS!

Thank you so much! You are a super star :)
