    when coding 93224-93225 what is the correct date of service to bill? Hookup date or disconnect date or does it matter?

    In order to bill for a Holter you would need to use your Hook-up date as the billing DOS.

    Default Holter Monitors

    Can anyone tell me if you can charge 93225/93226 more than once? For example: patient was seen in the ER room- physician orders 48 hour holter. Can you report these codes for day 1 and day 2?

    No, the code description for 2011 now states "up to 48 hours". Not per 24 hours anymore.
