    I have also been told by Medicare they are having an issue with these, there are processing as 3 calendar months but the NCD reads 3 months, from what they have told me they are working with CMS on a resolution....last I checked they have still not resolved.

    Default Tda, ba, cpc

    Just and FYI if this is pertinent, per the National Coverage Determination, effective 8/1/2011, 83036 will no longer be covered under Medicare if performed more than 4 times per calendar year.

    You are suddenly starting to get denials because patients are getting to the end of 12 month periods.
    Medicare will pay for 4 HgbA1c's in a 12 month period - not a calendar year.
    If the patient's DM is uncontrolled, or they have had changes to their diabetes medications you should appeal it with office notes.

    Our clinic has contacted Medicare because ours were being denied even though we had a GA modifier on them. They stated that there was something wrong with their system and were not able to tell us if we would have to resubmit - or if they would automatically reprocess them when it was fixed. Just check with Medicare.
