Claim Resolution/Utilization Review Matrix


The matrix below contains all of the CPT-4 codes for which National Imaging Associates
(NIA) authorizes on behalf of Horizon NJ Health. This matrix is designed to assist in the
resolution of claims adjudication and claims questions related to those services
authorized by NIA. If a procedure is billed under any one of the given codes for that
grouping and a valid authorization number has been issued within the date of service
validity period, the charge for any of the codes should be allowed.

If a family of CPT codes is not listed in this matrix, an exact match is required between
the authorized CPT code and the billed CPT code. If the exact match does not occur,
the charge should be adjudicated accordingly.

*Please note: Services rendered in an emergency room, observation room, or hospital
inpatient setting are not managed by NIA.
