A patient has an MRA & MRV ordered, the tech marks both and the radiologist dictates a separate report for the MRA & the MRV. The code is 70544, can I bill it twice with a 59 modifier for the second one?:confused:

I don't believe that you can. It is actually the same exam and the radiologist can see both the arteries and veins during one exam so the insurance would deny it as a duplicate even with documentation because there would be no need for a second exam.
