Can anybody tell me how to get 58561 and 58558/51 paid when both are done? It does not hit an NCCI edit yet I have gotten denials from the Blues, Health Partners and Preferred One saying 58558 is incidental or part of the more extensive procedure 58561! I appeal with notes showing both procedures are done and describe how they are to pay according to the multiple endoscopy rule. It seems to fall on deaf ears, what can I do?
