    Hi All,

    I am trying to get paid for a Central Line CPT code 36556 from a Ca work comp carrier. They are telling me that the code is invalid... Is there another code that anyone knows of that I can use ??

    Thank you
    Vickie

    Ca Work comp uses I believ it is 1996 CPT codes so you will need to get the same version they use or they will consider any code not created in that version an invalid code.

    You can go to the Work Comp fee schedule to see the codes but we finally found a book on ebay and that has helped tremendously! No more rejections!
