    Unhappy Having trouble billling MOHs beyond five stages

    AAPC: Back to School
    One of our insurance companies will not pay for Mohs procedure beyond 5 stages, up to five tissue blocks.

    Please let us know what we can do to get paid. If anyone knows of a reference source stating that number of stages are not limited. We have already went to the Medicare website. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    I bill for mohs surgery. Do you mind telling me which insurance company is giving you a hard time. I have on insurance company that denies the add on code as duplicate services. I have to submit documentation for every single one. It's crazy but thats the only way they pay.
