Vertical Electrodes Denials

Vertical Electrodes Denials

March 29, 2018

We are getting denials of 92547 (Use of vertical electrodes (List separately in addition to code for primary procedure)) when we bill it with 92585 (Auditory evoked potentials for evoked response audiometry and/or testing of the central nervous system; comprehensive).  What can we do to get paid on the electrodes?

Actually CPT instructions state “Use 92547 in conjunction with 92540-92546”; therefore, you should not even be billing 92547 with 92585.

*This response is based on the best information available as of 03/29/18.
