Billing CPT 84436 and 84439 together.

    Default Billing CPT 84436 and 84439 together.
    New Call-to-action
    We have had a denial stating that 84336 and 84339 cannot be billed together, even with an appropriate modifier. We use Trucode, and we are getting a NCCI edit stating the same. The denials so far are both from BCBS (Illinois). I'm not sure if that is only their policy, or if there is a true edit for billing these two CPT codes together. Any guidance would be appreciated.

  2. Default
    There is a CCI Edit between 84439 and 84436. These codes cannot be billed together. And no Modifier will override the edit. Only bill Code 84439. Hope this helps.
