I'm in a family practice setting.

Once in awhile I get these admit reports on my desk. From some of the specialist that work her, they go to the hospital and admit patients. Do there rounds and so on.

I'm coding the inpatient cpt 99223, but I also have these other serivices done, on this same visit.

93016
93018
93307
93320
93325

Being that the hopital cardiology department will bill for these services also. Would I bill these out with modifier 26.

Respectfully
Daniel, CPC

The hospital will be billing these services for the technical component, you will be billing for the professional component. So you should be billing these as follows:
93307/26
93320/26
93325/26
93016
93018

The treadmill codes are already stating that they are for S&I only, so they do not get a modifier.
