Hello, has anyone audited a medical record on Continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) for documentation and billing 90999 2016/2017? if so, what references did you use?

Thanks for your assistance

Good morning,

I am most positive that we have not dealt with that specific service. I would encourage you to research any CPT Assistant article that might provide insight into the code specific guidance. However, please note that the code you mentioned is an unlisted procedure code and while they should be used come with an uphill battle for accurate processing with many carriers.
