    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone know why MCR is still not paying for the new UDS (G0434) code?

    I spoke with Medicare today regarding this and they told me that based on our CLIA certificate type (type 2) we might not get paid for these types of tests. They denied over 40 G0434QW claims we sent earlier this year. I am still trying to figure out what that means for us. Have you spoken to Medicare?

    Does anyone else have any new updates about this??
