    Question Deleted Codes
    Medical Coding Books
    Potential Problem

    Has anyone received denials from MCR for 99241-99245?

    Called MCR and they are stating that pretty much all E/M codes have been deleted!!!!!!!!

    Help!

    I Was Not Aware This Change, But The Answer To Your Question Is No. No Denials On These Codes, Thus Far. I Will Do Some Research And Get Back To You.

    I will check on any rejections for cpt code's 99241- 99245, but they are listed in the 2008 cpt book, how could Medicare just decide these codes are deleted! I have not heard anything on this!

    Thank you for the helpful tip

    IN RESPONSE TO EARLIER COMMENT, I HAVE GONE ON THE TRAILBLAZER WEBSITE AND ACCORDING TO THE MEDICARE FEE SCHEDULE THESE CODES ARE STILL ACTIVE FOR 2008. THESE E/M CODES ARE ALSO LISTED IN THE AMA CPT GUIDELINES BOOK. I AM UNSURE AS TO WHY SOMEONE FROM MEDICARE WOULD HAVE STATED THIS INFORMATION TO YOU. WHAT TYPE OF DENIAL DID YOU RECEIVE?

    We have not received any denials either. I would call medicare back again. It sounds like the person that you talked to gave you some incorrect information.
