A patient came for digital screening bilateral mammogram. The radiologist recommended additional spot magnification view(s) to evaluate calcificaitons in RT breast. The patient came back a week later and we took RT mediolateral oblique and RT craniocaudal views.
We claim services as global charges. How do other providers charge magnification views?
G0206 or G0206-52? Does anybody charge this per view?

You would code G0206 - it involves any and all views in a diagnostic unilateral mammogram. It should not be coded per view.
