    Default 64718 denied

    AAPC: Back to School
    64718 - denied
    24305 (LT/59) - paid
    64721 (LT/59) - paid
    20550 (51/F4) - paid...this was performed on the right hand.
    J1100 - denied

    CCI edit is bundling 64718 to 24305 but a modifier is allowed.

    Medicare is denying 64718 for not being paid separate. Can anyone help me in determing why? Do you have a resource I can refer to?

    64718 is included in 24305. Medicare wants a 59 on the 64718. That is the way i get mine paid.

    If it's included, why are you putting a 59? Can you explain why modifier 59 is applicable?
