I have a Cardiologist coming to our Internal Medicine practice and I'm trying to get straight on some of his procedures. He says he does valve calculations.??? Can anyone give me a direction as to coding for this?Thanks

Does he do this via transthoracic echocardiography? In the CPT Echocardiography instructions it states ....."appropriate measurements are obtained and recorded". Could be 93307 but this is not my specialty.

use of MOD 59 with the echo add-on codes 93320-93325

our physicians know that the NCCI romoved its restriction on billing the echo. add-on codes together eff 05/01/09 so now we are billing all three codes.
Medicare denied the add-on codes because a Modifier is needed.
can we attached Modifier 59 to the Main code (93306)?

thanks
