What would be the correct cpt code(s) for a stress echo test in the physician office? It would be place of service 11. Physician's own the equipment. One physician would supervise and interpet the test.

93350,93320,93325 and you can also bill 93352 if you gave a drug to perform stress part instead of treadmill/bicycle. There is a note in CPT stating NOT TO USE 93015 when billing 93350 because physician supervision and interpretation is included in 93350. Hope this helps!

Be sure in 2012 here for the outpatient ones done at the hospital you are billing code 93351now with modifier -26 and NOT reporting 93016/93018 along with it per CPT 2012.

Doppler/color flow still okay.
