Thread: Upper and Lower ext doppler

    Default Upper and Lower ext doppler

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am having a problem getting Medicare to pay for upper and lower ext ADLE 93922. The physicians have just started doing these. They do both upper ext ADLE and lower ext ADLE at the same time. The code I use is for upper OR lower so I bill 93992 twice with a 59 on the second code. Is this correct? Or is there a modifier out there that I just have not heard of yet?
    Thank You,

    Are You Having These Done In The Office By A Doctor Or An Ultrasound Tech( And Doctor Reading Later)? Please Check Codes 93925/93926 And 93930/93931 And See If They Met Your Needs Better
