Same Day Echo & Stress Echo and Same Day TEE & Echo Same Day

    Default Same Day Echo & Stress Echo and Same Day TEE & Echo Same Day
    Exam Training Packages
    One of my doctors was at a seminar and was told that he can not do an Echo and Stress Echo on the same day and that a TEE and an Echo can't be done on the same day. He is questioning if this is true and if the place of service makes a difference.

    We do this occasionally. We just add a modifier 59. We manage to get paid. Both services are provided at the same POS.

    We also use modifier -59 and this gets them paid.

    we bill quite a few 93306 and stress done same day, same POS. No modifiers, no problems. We even have E&M billed as a 3rd service, no modifier - all 3 services are paid by Medicare.
