    • D.

      76070

    Correct Answer
    C. G0130
    Explanation
    The correct answer is G0130. G0130 is the correct code for a bone density study of two sites of the wrists using energy x-ray absorptiometry (SEXA) for a Medicare patient. The other codes listed (76071, 76075, and 76070) are not appropriate for this specific study or patient type.

  • 4. 

    A 63-year-old male, Medicare recipient receives 30 minutes of individual diabetes outpatiself-management training :

    • A.

      G0109

    • B.

      G0176

    • C.

      99213

    • D.

      G0108

    Correct Answer
    D. G0108
    Explanation
    G0108 is the correct answer because it is the Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) code for individual diabetes self-management training (DSMT) services, which is what the patient received. This code is specifically used for Medicare patients and covers 30 minutes of individual DSMT. G0176 is the HCPCS code for a different type of DSMT service, group DSMT, so it is not the correct answer. 99213 is a Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code for an office visit, which is not applicable to this scenario. G0109 is the HCPCS code for a different type of DSMT service, follow-up DSMT, so it is also not the correct answer.

  • 5. 

    A Medicare recipient presents for an influenza and pneumococcal vaccination. 

    • A.

      G0008

    • B.

      G0009

    • C.

      G0008, G0009

    • D.

      G0010, G0008

    Correct Answer
    C. G0008, G0009
    Explanation
    The correct answer is G0008, G0009. This answer is correct because G0008 represents the administration of the influenza vaccine, while G0009 represents the administration of the pneumococcal vaccine. Since the Medicare recipient is receiving both vaccinations, both codes G0008 and G0009 would be appropriate to use.

    General guidelines for HCPCS Level II Coding includes :

    • A.

      Code directly from the index

    • B.

      Search for main terms and any applicable sub-terms

    • C.

      Note the reference codes as given in the index

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Search for main terms and any applicable sub-terms
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Search for main terms and any applicable sub-terms." This is because when coding using HCPCS Level II, it is important to search for the main terms and any applicable sub-terms in order to accurately assign the appropriate code. This ensures that the code chosen accurately reflects the specific procedure, supply, or service being provided. Code directly from the index and noting the reference codes are also important steps in the coding process, but the most crucial step is searching for the main terms and sub-terms.

      Q0144

    • C.

      J1190 X 2

    • D.

      J2020 X 2

    Correct Answer
    A. J 0456
    Explanation
    J 0456 is the correct answer because it is the Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) code for the supply of Zithromax. This code specifically refers to the IV route of administration, which is how Sally received the medication. The other options (Q0144, J1190 X 2, J2020 X 2) do not accurately represent the supply of Zithromax through an IV route.

      G0438 only

    • C.

      99213, G0438-33

    • D.

      This is a sick visit so only report 99213.

    Correct Answer
    C. 99213, G0438-33
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 99213, G0438-33. In this scenario, the patient had a Medicare Annual Wellness Exam (AWV) along with an Established E & M visit, EPF Hx and Exam, and LOW MDM. The chief complaint (CC) was GERD and HTN. The code 99213 represents the level of service for the Established E & M visit, which is appropriate for a sick visit. The code G0438 represents the Medicare Annual Wellness Exam. Adding the modifier -33 to G0438 indicates that the service was preventive in nature. Therefore, the correct answer is to report both codes 99213 and G0438-33.

    A 19-Year old patient loses his eye in a tragic bass fishing accident. He presents today for implantation of a prosthetic eye. What is the correct HCPCS Level II code for the new eye?

    • A.

      V2629

      V2623

    • D.

      This supply would be included in the procedure code and not reported separately.

    Correct Answer
    A. V2629
    Explanation
    The correct HCPCS Level II code for the new eye is V2629. This code is used for prosthetic eyes and is appropriate for the patient who lost his eye in the fishing accident. The other options, L8610 and V2623, are not applicable in this case. The statement "This supply would be included in the procedure code and not reported separately" indicates that the cost of the prosthetic eye is already included in the overall procedure code for the implantation, so it should not be reported separately.

    Correct Answer
    D. 92004, V2502-RT, V2502-LT
    Explanation
    The correct coding for this scenario is 92004, V2502-RT, V2502-LT. The patient is receiving a comprehensive ophthalmologic exam (92004), and the physician is providing PMMA bifocal lenses (V2502) for the patient. The RT and LT modifiers indicate that the lenses are for the right and left eyes respectively. The patient is instructed to follow up in 10 days to determine if the lenses are working well for his eyes.

      Q0164 X 2

    • D.

      J0780 X 2

    Correct Answer
    D. J0780 X 2
    Explanation
    The correct answer is J0780 X 2. This is the correct code for reporting the treatment. The patient is receiving two injections of Compazine, each containing 10 mg, with a three-hour interval between them. The code J0780 represents the injection of Compazine, and the "X 2" indicates that the injection is repeated twice.

    Correct Answer
    A. 96372, J2510
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 96372, J2510. This code combination is used to report the administration of an injection, in this case, a penicillin shot. Code 96372 represents the therapeutic, prophylactic, or diagnostic injection administration, while code J2510 represents the specific medication administered, which is penicillin G procaine. Therefore, this combination accurately reflects the service provided in this scenario.

    Explanation
    The correct coding for this service is 57160, A4561. The code 57160 represents the fitting and insertion of a pessary ring, which is what the physician did in this case. The code A4561 represents the pessary itself, which was given to the patient for use once she can insert and remove it on her own.

    Patient is in 5 days post-op period from an open heart surgery and is getting ready to go home from the hospital today. His physician, who is stuck behind a nine-car pile-up on I-20, cannot get to the hospital. He calls into the hospital and speaks with his patient about how he is feeling, and goes over his care and medication in depth. 25 minutes later the conversation is over, and the patient is ready for discharge. How would you code the physician's services from his care over the phone?

    • A.

    • B.

      G0407

    • C.

      99233

    • D.

      G0408

    Correct Answer
    B. G0407
    Explanation
    The correct answer is G0407, which is the correct code for a telephone evaluation and management service provided by a physician to a patient in the post-operative period.

This code accurately represents the physician's services in this situation.
