I was confused with the 93010 and 93005. I had a provider who used both codes. I sent question to PASBA and this was the response from PASBA: Answer: The provider can not use both codes on the same visit or for same patient if he is doing all the components. He should be coding it as 93000. For the 93005 means one provider does the tracing only, than when it is sent for someone else to interpretate they would code the 93010.
The providers were using 93000, then one day they all switched and started using 93005. the providers say they are not interpreting the EKG's on the same day. So, if this is the case what is the correct code for a outpatient hospital?

How come there are no guidelines strickly for cardiology? For this specialty you should have guidelines for this and able to find more examples.
