    Default stress echo

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a new client that is interested in doing Stress Echo’s in their office. They currently do treadmill tests, and do echocardiograms. What CPT codes would go together for a complete Stress Echo. Right now we use 93307, 93329 and 93325. Please let me know how to bundle all CPT codes to perform a Stress Echo.

    I have never coded cardiology before but I am thinking the proper way to code stress echo would be 93350 with the appropriate code from the 93015-93018 series, per CPT these codes should be reported in addition to 93350 to capture the exercise stress portion of the study. Hope this helps!!!!

    I agree. If your physician is present during the entire procedure you would code 93016, 93018 and 93350. If not present entire procedure 93018 and 93350 with 26 mondifier on 93350 only

    Hi, This is my speciality! Stress Echos are 93350, 93015 and any pharmaseutical like dobutamine if it's used.
