    Default Fixing Denial for 78452-26, 93016, 93018

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am curious if anyone else in Cardiology is running into Medicare stating that the two of these codes (78452-26 & 93016) are components of 93018? I am billing for professional component with -26 modifier and would like to know if anyone has info on correct way Medicare would like us to bill the nuclear interps? Thank you, Gail.
