    Default stress & stress echo

    AAPC: Back to School
    hello everyone-
    could i get some assistance on these codes..our office usually bills for a stress echo 93015, 93350, 93320 & 93325 should I be billing the 93015 with this group (they are on treadmill) or does the 93350 cover the exercise? and does the new echo guidelines apply here w/the 93320 & 93325? i appreciate any assistance you could give me.

    The way we code these in our office is
    93351-stress echo, includes 93015
    93325-color flow
    93352-for the administration of the drug
    J or Q codes for the drug used

    It was my understanding that the 93350 is used in hospital settings. Hope this helps!
