G Codes

Health insurance is complicated enough without multiple sets of codes to keep track of for billing purposes. Hopefully we are making your life a little easier this week. Yesterday we tackled MNT CPT codes and ICD-10 codes.  Don't worry, the MNT coding fun doesn't stop there! Today we will dive into G codes.

G Codes are additional codes established by CMS to use with Medicare covered services. The number of MNT hours covered by Medicare is 3 hours in the initial calendar year with 2 hours in subsequent years if referred by a physician. In order to bill for additional hours of MNT service performed, use G codes!
