The physician did a 93971 for DVT but stated that it was incomplete because no B mod Scan was recorded. Can I still bill for the 93971, does it need a modifier? or should it be adjusted?
Thanks!

I think we would need to see a report of what was actually done. Hard to determine what to do based on the information given.

Modifier 52 is for reduced procedures and is to be used when a procedure is partially reduced or eliminated.
There is no need to reduce the price the insurance will asses the price on their own.

Is this the report that the initial questioner was asking about? Or did you just provide a sample suggested report?
