Intraoperative neurophysiology monitoring with Electrocorticogram 95940 + 95829

    Default Intraoperative neurophysiology monitoring with Electrocorticogram 95940 + 95829
    New Call-to-action
    My physicians are trying to bill 95940, an add-on code for continuous intraoperative neurophysiology monitoring along with 95829, Electrocorticogram. My understanding is that 95940 should NOT be billed along with 95829, as 95829 includes the monitoring. Am I correct? I can't find any literature confirming my interpretation to be true or not. Can anyone help?

    95940 is an add-on code that requires one of the parent codes to be also reported:
    This code can be reported with code(s): 92585, 95822, 95860, 95861, 95863, 95864, 95865, 95866, 95867, 95868, 95869, 95870, 95907, 95908, 95909, 95910, 95911, 95912, 95913, 95925, 95926, 95927, 95928, 95929, 95930, 95933, 95937, 95938, 95939

    95829 is not one of the CPT defined parent codes for 95940.
