Doreen you are correct to code only 93350 or 93351. These codes were created to use when performing an echocardiogram with the stress test. 93306 is for the echo only, no other testing. The way she is coding could be considered double dipping or fraudulent billing.
I believe this information can be verified in the CMS website, Medicare online manuals. I'll get back to you with the link.
