    Anyone out there working for an Allergist?? How does CPT 95165 Doses work? How do you verify that the units billed are correct? I have providers who bill upt o 200 units on HCFA just wondering how it all works?? I've looked in the CMS Manual and obtained some info but I'm still confused...HELP

    Also check the CMS Internet-Only Manual (IOM) Pub. 100-04 Claims Processing Manual for further guidance. I believe CMS allows 10 units per 95165 per line item.

    Hi Rachell Lindley,

    I am not able to access this Coding Advisory on Maximum units allowed for 95004.

    Please advice.
