    Default Does SNF have pmt responsibility for 99152?
    New Call-to-action
    Dr did Kyphoplasty on SNF patient in the Office Setting.
    99152/99153 were moderate sedation codes billed along with the 22513 for kyphoplasty. Medicare paid 22513...Denied 99152/99153 stating it is responsibilit of SNF.
    For non-SNF patients, Medicare does pay 99152/99153.
    Does anybody have any documentation stating that 99152/99153 pmt is the responsibility of the SNF?

    99152 is on the list of codes not part of consolidated billing. 99153 is under SNF consolidated billing since its considered a technical only component code.
