How to resubmit denied claims for multiple units of 88342 to UnitedHealthcare
Following CAP advocacy to convince UnitedHealthcare to revise its payment policy for American Medical Association Current Procedural Terminology (AMA CPT) code 88342, the insurer finalized how it will reprocess denial of units of the immunohistochemistry service that exceeded one earlier this year. This process will affect all claims for 88342 that exceeded one unit with a date of services on or after Jan. 1, 2014 and processed by UnitedHealthcare on or before May 18, 2014.
