Thread: Consult or Follow Up on same day as Cath/Stent

    Default Consult or Follow Up on same day as Cath/Stent

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone bill for these and get paid by appending the 25 modifier?
    I say that they can at least append it to the Consult. Might not get away with appending it to the Follow Up but wanted to get everyone elses take if you had one.

    If the cath was planned -, we do not bill the consult. If unplanned we then bill with modifier 25 and get paid.
