We received this from UHC after we asked them why they were unbundling EKG
code 93000:

*Cpt 93000 is subject to MPPR (Multiple Procedure Payment Reduction). Per
CMS guidelines this became effective with claims reported on and after
11/15/2015 that are processed 12/12/2015 and after, UnitedHealthcare will
apply MPPR to applicable diagnostic imaging services(for Imaging,
Ophthalmology and Cardiology) Cpt 93000 is an eligible code for MPPR and
was billed globally. When processed this line will deny and crosswalk to
the professional and technical components of the new crosswalk codes. In
this case 93000 crosswalks to 93005 for the TC and to 93010 for the PC.
Please refer to the Multiple Procedure Payment Reduction for Diagnostic *

Does this sound right?
