Office procedure w/ hospital admit


Best answers
Hi, I hope someone can help me. We had a patient in the office, who saw the MD, had labs, and an IV for dehydration. Americhoice paid the labs and supplies, and is denying 90760 (it was repeated at the hospital) They are quoting CPT "all services provided on the date of admission in other sites of service" are included in the admit. Wouldn't all services also include labs then? Does anyone else run into this problem? What do you do? Do you add a modifier 76 to the IV?
