    Question Osteopathic Manipulation

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi all, I am getting a lot of denials on this so maybe someone out there can help me code this correctly. EX: The doctor is a DO, he sees a pt for back pain, pharyngitis, cervicalgia, he does a throat culture, then, does a back adjustment (98925)

    I thought we would code the pharyngitis with a cpt 99212, then the 87880 for the pharyngitis, the because he does multiple back adjustments, I would bill a 98925 with a modifier 59?

    I am being denied. Any suggestions welcome. thanks

    Default DO denial

    Did you use the modifier 25 on your 99212?
