Thread: 92551 billed with 99392?

    Default 92551 billed with 99392?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Has anyone run into this scenario? Pediatrician sees a 4 year old established patient for physical exam. He also does a vision test and hearing test during the same visit. The carrier is only paying for 99392 and 99173, denying 92551 as part of the physical exam. All three were billed with V20.2 as the diagnosis code.

    Should the 92551 be bundled into 99392 or is it separately payable?

    We do not bill hearing tests anymore because they are always bundled....also are you sure you are using the correct code...we would use the Tympanometry code because we did not do the pure tone, air only, so not sure what machine you have to perform this screening ...
