Thread: Mammography services

    Question Mammography services

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can someone please explain the correct way to bill for a mammography along with a CAD (computer assisted device) add-on codes 77051 & 77052 or direct me to some documentation. What are the true primary mammography codes for a non-medicare patient. I have been seeing G0202, etc as the prime with the 77052, etc as the add-on. Is this correct? I would expect to see a CPT and not a HCPC code as the prime.
    Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

    The proper way to bill for these, for all payers, is the CPT for the mammo and the CAD add on.
    77055 or 77056 WITH 77051
    77057 WITH 77052

    You can also sign up for an audio conference at the below link

    Thumbs up Thank you

    Hello Allison
    Thank you for your help. I did view the link for the audio, unfortunately my company already purchased all of AAPC audios for the year and this would be an additional that we will not be able to purchase.
    Again thanks.
