    If all our Dr do is read the stress test can we use the 26 modifier on procedure code 94621?

    Yes, if all you are doing is providing the written interp and report, then you can code 94621-26 for the pulmonary stress testing.

    Be sure you're on the right code as there is a 93015-93018 code range for cardiovascular stress testing
