Thread: CT & CCTA on same day

    Smile CT & CCTA on same day

    AAPC: Back to School
    Our radiologists are doing a CT Chest and
    Cardiac CT for Calcium Scoring one the same day. I would like some clarification as the requirements needed to bill these two procedures on the same day. Is it allowed as long as the CT Chest is for non-cardiac findings only or will the CCTA always include this information?

    Can someone refer me to documentation for the correct coding of these exams?

    For Radiology we use the CSI navigator. Are you using the 75571-75574 codes? And make sure you append a 59 mod to the CT of the chest.
