Thread: Limited Breast Ultrasound

  1. #1

    Default Limited Breast Ultrasound

    Promo: Code Books
    My physician is requesting additional information on limited breast ultrasounds. I have explained the code 76645 is for breast ultrasound of one or both breasts. He feels that during specific focused procedures where they are only looking at a very specific limited portion of the breast that we should be billing something different.

    If I am incorrect in saying to bill the 76645 I would sure like to know. Please advise on this subject.

    Thank you for your help!

    Default limited breast ultrasound

    Hi,

    76645 is correct. If he feels it's a "limited" study, you could add modifier -52.
