    We are Family Practice, and it does mention need valid code for anesthesia. It's strange.

    Default 96372

    I had an insurance to deny this code also so I copied the page from the CPT book and sent it attached to the hcfa form and they then paid it.

    Default 90772

    We've had a lot of problems with this new code 96372 also. Insurance programs evidently haven't updated for the new CPT's, or something. I also had a copy of the CPT sent with a claim. I still have billers ask me about the new codes for 2009 because insurances are rejecting saying the codes are invalid. Scary isn't it.

    Default 96372

    I used the 96372 for B12 Administration instead of the 90772. Medicare paid it but it would not pay the visit which is unrelated to the b12 injection. What should I do?

    Did U use the 25 modifier on the office visit? Did you link only the dx for the B12 to the injection and only the dx for the OV to the OV?
