I do facility billing. Many times we will do the full blood glucose test 82947 upon initial presentation (usually to the ED), and then do repeated 82962 - blood glucose testing on the device, either in the ED or up on the inpatient unit until the child's diabetes is under control well enough for discharge. They are truly done multiple times, and separately. However, CCI edits do not appear to allow this scenario. Does anyone know of a way to get this paid? We are having issues with even getting these claims out the door without taking the 82962 off the claim entirely (we use Epic and Passport). It doesn't seem fair.

I would appreciate any suggestions!
