CPT 20610 denials......

    Default CPT 20610 denials......
    Medical Coding Books
    I know the CPT 20610 can't be used for Sacroiliac injections. But why am I now getting denials on knee and hip injections? I am doing everything the same but now for some reason they are getting denied. Please help. I have spent hours on the Medicare website and now I want to jump off a bridge. Thank you.

    Have you checked the Medicare LCD? Also, are you using a RT or LT modifier?

    Default 20610
    It could be the DX and the modifiers are needed. What is the rejection code?

    Is the patient in a global period? You may need to attach a 58 or 79.
