Are you getting insurance denials for payment of Evaluation and Management (E&M) codes 99201-99215 when billed with chiropractic manipulation? You are not alone!

Here are 3 solutions to this insurance claim denial.

1. Modifier 25: Modifier 25 should be appended to the E & M code when billed with chiropractic treatment. The 25 indicates there was a separate and distinct evaluation above and beyond the pre- and post-evaluation associated with treatment.

2. Letter of Appeal: After coding the claim properly with the appropriate E & M code appended with modifier 25, your next step is to write a letter of appeal explaining the necessity of the separate examination.

3. Splitting claims: Split the claim using the same date of service with one claim for the E & M with modifier 25 and a second claim for the chiropractic treatment.

Billing with incorrect chiropractic CPT codes can lead to claim rejections and delays in payments, which can have a devastating impact on generating revenue and keeping you in business.
