re: Not A Covered Service

Your diagnosis codes are an issue. All codes, both diagnosis & CPT® indicate a female. 608.9 is unspecified disorder of male genital organs. You have a gender mismatch that will cause rejection by the payer.

re: Not A Covered Service

76856 should be covered for 625.9, 218.1 & 218.2 & for 608.9,
unless the payer has some specific coverage policy about the service.


Ensure they are not both reported on the same claim.

re: Not A Covered Service

There are CCI edits for 71250 & 75574 as the greater procedure. Both may be allowed if medical necessity clearly allowed. Modifier 59 would be required.

More importantly, some payers will not reimburse for a CT scan & CT angiography on the same date. Rationale is that the lower level test might have given sufficient information without need for the higher level test. Higher level test may be allowed only if lower level test has been done previously & did not give sufficient information.

You really need to become familiar with the coverage policies of your payers.
