Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Alert

CMS has confirmed that HCPCS codes 92012 and 92014 that are appropriately reported with the 25 modifier should not be denied by the Correct Coding Initiative (CCI) files. A correction for this issue has been implemented.

New claims processed that report the 25 modifier in conjunction with 92012 or 92014 will not receive the CCI denials.

Novitas will identify and reprocess any claims that were denied incorrectly.
