EKG & Modifier


Best answers
We saw a patient for palpitations and shoulder pain. We billed 99213.25, 93000, 20610 &
J1885 to Medicare. Medicare processed all except the 93000. When I called to find out why they said that the EKG needed a modifier as it was bundled with the 20610. Does anyone use a modifier on the EKG when it was done with an injection? If so, what modifier do you use? Also was this billed correctly?
