Is it for Medicare? Some carriers require modifiers depending on the circumstance in which you're giving the aranesp (i.e. EC for non-ESRD anemia non-chemo).

If this is the first time you're submitting charges for an ESA and its for medicare its best to read completely through your LCD. There's alot involved and you'll keep getting denials until you've met all the requirements.

Good luck!
