As per Aetna March Bulletin– when the provider is going to perform/bill allergy testing codes (95004-95079) with the code 95180 (rapid desensitization); AETNA will deny allergy testing and consider it mutually exclusive to rapid desensitization.
This change will become affective as of 06/01/2021
In order to not get this type of denial, providers will have to do allergy testing (95004-95079) on a separate date as a rapid desensitization (95180).
