Thread: EKG reporting

    Default EKG reporting

    AAPC: Back to School
    I'm trying to locate written documentation to determine if the report for 93000 needs a separate report or if it can be part of record. Any help is appreciated.

    Results of an office EKG should be documented in the chart note and the EKG tracing is kept in the patient's chart. I hope this answers your question

    Default Written Report

    The code requires an interpretation and report, you need more than just initials and a date, the doc needs to write something about the tracing.
