    Default Pelvic Ultrasounds

    AAPC: Back to School
    Payers are denying 76830 and 76817 (transvaginal U/S) when performed with 76856 and 76801 (transabdominal U/S), but there are no edits between the code pairs.

    The edits were deleted years back. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
