    Default 76815 and 76816

    AAPC: Back to School
    What is the appropriate clinical scenario to bill 76815 and 76816 and the same day?

    Thank you.

    The only thing I can think of would be separate sessions. Another words that patient had one sono and then due to a status change or an event, like an accident or a fall the patient has another one later in the day.

    I can't think of any reason where both the 76815 and 76816 would or should be done at the same session.
