    Can somebody help me with this? This is for allergy testing which is new to me. Not sure if provider is billing the correct # of units for 95027. My provider is billing for 42 units of 95027. Here's the documentation- Pt here for 2nd half of Spring testing. Pt tested positive to all antigens. Walnut, Pine, Hickory, Red Cedar, Sour Dock #4's English Plantain, Timothy Grass, Johnson Grass #5's. Treatment doses planted. All wheals negative after 10 minutes. Pt given 0.05cc of Histamine #7 sl post testing.

    How many units are documented in this note?

    When I read the description of the code in CPT it just says "specify number of tests". So query your provider on how this testing works. I don't know if this is correctly documented, maybe that is how many tests are in the "2nd half of Spring testing". You need more information.
