Hello. Accessory Splenectomy was completed Dec 2009...billed to Medicare as 38100 with dx codes 287.5 and 759.0; which denied as payer not supporting this many/frequency of services. Reviewing the case....splenectomy was submitted 1/2009.
Do you not submit the same code for splenectomy if it is "accessory" or is this a denial I should fight.
I would love any thoughts. Thanks. Tracy
