    Default Documentation for Echo Complete vs Limited

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone know what documentation is required for a complete Echo Exam? Or even where I can find this information?
    Thank You

    Default documentation for echo

    Yes look up 93306 cpt code and read the information before the code. IT will tell you what a "complete" echo consist of.

    R & L ventricle
    R & L atrium
    All three valves ( mitral,aortic,tricuspid)
    and ajacent portions of the aorta

    Doppler and colorflow-----must mention and should provide information reguarding intracardiac blood flow and hemodynamics.

    It also tells what limited is.

    Hope this helps!
