    Default Cpt 85018

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi All,

    We billed CPT 85018 (QW) to Medicare. But we are getting a denial stating " Submission billing error" Can anyone help me with this?

    You will use the QW mod if the concerned practice has a CLIA Certificate of Waiver and the CLIA# should also be submitted with the claim.

    I completely agree with Parth you need to submit CLIA Certificate of Waiver and the CLIA# should also be submitted with the claim.

    Neet not submit certificate of waiver, just submit CLIA# with the claim.
