Thread: TEE with RT & LT Heart Cath

    Question TEE with RT & LT Heart Cath

    AAPC: Back to School
    Physician did a Rt & Lt Heart Cath followed immediately with transesophageal echo--my question is there a problem billing both procedures same day? Would I have to use Modifier 59 for the TEE?

    There should not be a problem with billing these the same day and no modifier should be needed. We have billed both of these before and never had a problem.
