United Healthcare Denying 98943 with the -51 modifier

Posted in July 2014 by Dana Ellis

Recently United Healthcare has begun denying CPT code 98943 when appended with a -51 modifier.

After some investigation, we found that United Healthcare performed a system update which has caused the denial of claims filed with the CPT code 98943 with a -51 modifier. The ultimate impact has just begun for those providers who have continued to use that code with the -51 modifier.

The only remedy is to submit a corrected claim after removing the -51 modifier.

In the meantime we recommend that all providers carefully watch their EOB’s (Explanation of Benefit’s) for the denial of this CPT code.

  • The decision to move billing out of my office was one of the happiest moments in my practice!! While it could be handled in office, not having the stress of dealing with denied / improperly paid claims is massive and worth every penny.
  • "First Choice Medical Billing has been such a great company to work with. Dana and Rachel take a personal approach in handling each and every claim that they bill out."
