Our office is having troubles getting protimes being paid by Medicare. Our office has Medical Assistants, no nurses and we are doing the protimes in office. We have been billing the 85610 with the fingerstick (FS is done, not a venipuncture). Medicare is bundling the fingerstick and only paying for the 85610(protime). Any suggestions? --- does the protime need to have QW modifier-would that make a difference? any help would be appreciated.
