Thread: CCI edit - billing 93015 with 96374 and "J codes"

    Default CCI edit - billing 93015 with 96374 and "J codes"

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can someone help me with a question regarding appropriately unbundling 96374 from 93015.
    We were billing the following codes together:
    93015 (stress test)
    J0152 (adenosine medication)
    96374- 59 (administration via IV push)

    In the 2009 2Q it states that 96374 is bundled with 93015 but can use 59 when appropriate.
    I attended a contexolearining webinar that states "the injections of "contrast" are not separately reportable. But in the case where it is a medication verses a contrast is it OK to unbundle with a 59

    You were told correctly, you cannot bill 9674 with J0152. You would bill only the stress test and adenosine: 93015 & J0125.
