    Question Cath modifier

    Question Normal saline injection

    Can you bill out for normal saline injection for a nuclear stress test? If the tech is just flushing the med or checking the IV during a persantine I would think it is not billable but I can not find any information on it. Thank you!!!!

    Question Denial regarding add on code

    I billed out a stent and IVUS Codes: 92928-RC, 93454-26,59 92978-26,RC (IVUS) Plus blue is denying whole claim stating that add on code cannot be billed by itself. Does anyone know if I should be adding a 59 to IVUS? If so, would it be 92978 - 26,59,RC Thanks
