    Default Cardiac spect

    AAPC: Back to School
    We are having a discussion on which codes are correct for the following situation:
    Patient in cardiac rehab has treadmill stress test by hospital paid physician who does report (can we charge 93015?)

    Then he goes to nuclear med truck for imaging for SPECT, wall motion and ejection fraction done by technician. A report is generated by an outside radiologist. The technical portion is charged to us. Radiologist bills for his report to the patient . Can we charge 78452?

    FYI: We got the following info from an outside consultant: 93016, 93017 and 78452
