Thread: 93923 Included in E/M ?

  1. #1

    Default 93923 Included in E/M ?

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am a cardiology coder/Biller and I have been receving denials from Medicare B for: 250.00 -93923 "ABI" (Denial: Medical Neccesity)

    Quest: 1. Do you have to be a registered tech to perform and get paid for ABI?
    2. Is 93923 included in the E/M or can I add a modifier?

    Default LCD check

    The denial reason clearly states "not a medical necessity" so pls check the LCD coverage for Medicare Part B.

    For 93923 the coverable Dx for diabetes are 250.70-250.73, pls check the documentation for if coverable Diagnosis is available, if so bill that ICD-9.

    With regards
    Arul CPC.
