consult code denied

  1. Question consult code denied
    Exam Training Packages
    Is anyone familiar with knowing why United Healthcare would deny 99244 and pay 93010?

    Are they separately reportable?

    Thank you for your input.

    I don't know off hand but it may be because United Healthcare doesn't recognize the consult codes anymore. Like I said, I don't know off hand but some insurances are following Medicare and not recognizing them anymore. They may be one of them.
