I am having a problem understanding CPT code 93624 follow up to evaluate therapy. Can it be done during the same session as an ablation or does the documentation need to state a different day or time?
Thanks for your help!

Usage of modifier -25 and -59

Good afternoon everyone,

Please advise, should coders be adding a modifier -59 to every procedure when an E/M is being performed on the same day – for Medicare and / or Commercial carriers: Example below: all performed on the same day

Hospital or Office E/M with a modifier -25
EKG – modifier -59
Echo – modifier -59
and a stress test - modifier -59

To me this appears to be overutlizing the modifier -59 however I'm told this is how we should billing for all carriers.

Your thoughts and knowledge is welcomed!
