    It depends on the situation...

    if the EKG was done and from that EKG it was decided to do a treadmill, then yes I would say you can bill them on the same date of service with a -59 on the EKG.

    If the EKG was done during the treadmill, then no, it is inclusive and cannot be billed.

    You want to make sure you know, -59 draws red flags and you want to be sure you have the proof.
