General Question for the Week of December 25, 2017

General Compliance Question of the Week

Question:

If I receive a bundling message that says something is included in a service billed on the same day and I do not find evidence of this edit in the latest version update of the National Correct Coding Initiative (NCCI), who should I ask about this denial?

Answer:

Contact your local A/B Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) about other edits that may be in place on a national or local level which have nothing to do with the NCCI edits.
