Our provider is a PCP but also specializes in Pulmonary. The doctor goes to the hospital and reads PFT's - we have been coding as follows: 94726, 94060 (with bronchodilator) or 94010 (without bronchodilator), then using 94729 if it was with DLCO.
We do have some patient's that do just a Bronchospasm provocation evaluation and then we use 94070. We use modifier 26 because the test is taking place at a different facility.

Are we coding these correctly? Or is there another way to code so we can get back a better reimbursement? Some insurances are adjusting off amounts and I feel like we are coding them wrong.

Please help - Thank You in advance.
