    If the patient is pregnant with Twins...can you bill the 76820 twice on the same day as 2 units?

    This test determines the velocity of blood flow through the umbilical artery. As this is a twin pregnancy, it would have to be performed once on each fetus and should be billed as such.

    Hi all!
    Can we bill it twice (no twin pregnancy) in a single day? let's say once along with 76805/15/16 and then with 76819?
    Thanks in advance

    Per ACOG, 76820 is to be billed seperately for each fetus with a modifier -59 added to the addition code(s).
