Cardiology coding

  1. Question Cardiology coding
    Exam Training Packages
    Hi, I was wondering when a cardiac diagnostic is performed on the same day as a procedure can you apply modifier 59 to it? Also can they both be billed separately?

  2. Default
    Can you provide an example or code combinations that you have questions about?

    If you are talking about an intervention being done in the same sitting as the diagnostic exam, yes it can be billed at the same time.
