Just want to make sure I understand when a provider gets credit for test.

If a provider orders an x-ray and reads the results that same day, I understand he only gets credit for the ordering.

But if he orders the x-ray when sees patient and reads the results the next following visit he sees the patient, does he get credit for reviewing results the next time he sees the patient?

5/1/21 - order xray
5/6/21 - review of xray

I got a bit confused as I read some are saying no and some say yes, help please.

The review is included in the order, so the provider doesn't get credit for a separate review even if it's done at a subsequent visit.
But I have another question - If a provider orders an x-ray of the ankle on 5/1 and also places a separate ankle x-ray order on 5/1 to be done on 5/6, does this count as 2 unique tests? I was thinking yes. "X-ray today. Follow up in 2 weeks with pre-clinic x-rays."
