Heart Cath and Echo same day

    Can I bill a heart cath and echo on the same day?
    with a 59 modifier?

  2. Default
    Sure, we bill echos and heart caths on the same day if appropriate.

    A -59 modifier is not required. These are different procedures and do not bump up against each other at all.
