I work with Pedi Cardiology, when billing a reading of an EKG 93010 with echo 93303,93325&93320 on dame DOS so we need to add modifier 59 in the 93010?

Modifier -59 is the modifier of last resort and personally I don't think this modifier is appropriate for code 93010. I think the modifier that is needed is modifier -26.

It may depend on the carrier. Some of ours require modifier 59 on 93010 in similar scenarios, though we usually have an office visit on the same day as well.
