    Smile guided ultrasound

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a rejection from blue cross: I billed under CRNP- they are not paying the guided u/s 76942, but they are paying the joint injection 20610... what is up with this? Please help!

    Are you adding modifier -26 for the professional component only? (or does your practice own the US?)

    I don't see a reason for denial either. I would appeal with documentation. GOOD LUCK!!
