Thread: E/M Bundled

    Default E/M Bundled

    AAPC: Back to School
    When we bill OV with Diagnostic Nasal Endoscopy 31231 some payers deny the OV even if a mod 25 is used. The providers feel they definitely did an E&M which is significant and separately identifiable from the procedure done on same day.

    Is it a good idea to appeal these claims with the providers' documentations.

    Partha. if your physicians feel that they TRULY performed a distinct seperate E/M , then apeal it. are they seperate diagnosis codes
    as in seperate anatomical areas?
    Just because the MD says it, doesnt allways mean they are right. Read the Notes!!
