I keep getting a claim denied on a Medicare patient and the billing edits keep saying that " too many rev 521 charges on claim"? I'm not sure what I am doing wrong. The patient came for a regular sick visit and received a nebulizer treatment. I code 99214 and 94640. Please help!

Are you a rural health clinic?
From the presentation, The Basics of Rural Health Billing:
 Procedures performed on the same day as an RHC encounter will be bundled and ONE RATE will be paid for the entire encounter.

I am coding for a RHC. I understand what you mean by bundling but I can only use the E/M code and not the code for the neb treatment?

That is my understanding, that you bill either the visit level or the procedure. Injections, are different.

You can only have one 521 revenue code in any medicare part a submission. The fun part is trying to find the revenue codes for the other choices...labs revenue codes are 300 and injections are 771.
