    What are the maximum units that can be charged for this code?

    CMS has a max of 5. Anything beyond that would need very specific medical necessity documented (as with any procedure(s))

    Default 62290
    Do you know where I can find this information on CMS website? I tried to locate the document, but couldn't find anything.

  5. #5
    Default 62290
    Should that be billed to Medicare as 62290 on five separate lines with a 59 modifier or 62290 once with 5 units?

    I think this could really become carrier specific however, I tend to break it out by separate lines.
