Thread: discontinued audiology testing

    Default discontinued audiology testing

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can we code for an unsuccessful audio procedure? For example, spending much time with a small, uncooperative child without completing the test? Thanks in advance for your help!

    I would bill it with -52 or -53 modifier.

    We use the 52 for reduced services
