    Default Backbench Prep 47143 - Denied by Medicaid

    AAPC: Back to School
    NY Medicaid is denying CPT 47143 (backbench preparation cadaver donor whole liver graft prior to allotransplantation) and the code is not on their fee schedule. Is there a way out?

    appeal to your Medicaid Medical Director to have the code added. Get all your transplant centers and the Physicians to start calling and writing.
    Good Luck
