Coding, Classification and Reimbursement

  • 1.  Arthrocentesis

    Posted 6 days ago


    We billed Anthem for 20600 ( arthrocentesis, aspiration and or injection without ultrasound) and 73630( foot, 3 views), they paid 73630 but will not pay 20600. I cannot find any reason why these should not be billed and paid together. Anyone have any ideas on this?

    Thank you,
