What is 99199 and why is it special l.jpg
What is “99199” and Why is it Special?

  • The MHS computer system cannot generate both an institutional (UB 92) and professional (CMS1500) bill from one code

    • In the civilian sector, CPT code 62268 Percutaneous aspiration of spinal cord cyst

      • On a CMS 1500 = the doctor’s service

      • On the UB 92 = the ambulatory surgery center fee

What is “99199” and Why is it Special?

  • Until the system is updated, the MHS must bill a flat rate for the institutional component

  • “99199” is the code the Military Health System uses to indicate the institutional component of an ambulatory procedure visit.

  • Due to a programming error, the 99199 was not included in the rate package effective in CHCS 14 Sept 2005

  • This error was identified after the rate package was submitted to CHCS

  • The error was corrected in TPOCS

    • Will not affect TPC or MAC

Temporary billing method l.jpg
Temporary Billing Method

  • Review the Preview lists in CHCS:

    • DD7A outpatient billing preview list

    • MSA outpatient itemized billing preview list

  • When the CPT code 99199 is reported

    • Check to make sure the patient actually had an ambulatory procedure visit (APV)

    • If you find someone using 99199 for something other than the institutional component of an APV, show them the “Use of CPT Code 99199” letter

    3 November 2005 Slide 6


    Temporary billing method cont l.jpg
    Temporary Billing Method (cont.)

    • When the 99199 is reported for a billable MSA encounter you will have to enter in a “one time charge” to bill for the APV facility fee

    • The APV facility fee is $819.18

    • The bill form will be either an Invoice & Receipt (I&R) or the DD7A
