    Default 69990
    New Call-to-action
    Claim is denying 69990 because its unspecified & the carrier is Coventry. It's being billed with CPT 63030... I believe its denying in error could someone please advise

    Hi, when we bill 63030, 69990 is inclusive in the code hence there is no need to bill 69990 seperately and this may be the reason of the denial. Hope it helps.

    69990 is inclusive with 90% of the carriers for 63030. We still bill it together and its a bonus if we get paid for it.
