    Default Allergy Testing 95024 vs. 95027

    AAPC: Back to School
    does anyone know if we can bill 95024 to BCBS & Medicare when in reality we performed 95027? In the past 95027 will be denied as a non-covered service yet the 95024 will be considered and immunotherapy is also a covered benefit.

    Default NO - You should code what is documented

    The benefits do not drive the coding. The documentation drives the coding.

    Physicians should document what they do. Coders should code what was documented.

    If it's not a covered benefit, patient will be responsible.

    Hope that helps.
