    Exclamation Need Help on 76140

    Hi To All,
    Does anyone knows any replacement code for 76140 in billing for Medicare,
    76140 --Consultation on x-ray examination made elsewhere, written report to Medicare.
    MC is not considering this as a valid CPT any longer since it is a "consultation"
    what code could we use then??

    I do appreciate all the help the you can give.

    I'm not sure if MC = Medicare, but Medicare has not paid for this code in the past.

    Medicare does not pay for an overread on an x-ray as it is not considered medically necessary. This would be included in the E/M service if applicable.
