I work in a hospital in the radiology deparment. One of our hospitals bills a combination code that they created that links CPT codes 71010 and 74000 together. They want to add this combo code to our hospital's data base, but I have a problem with it. They are only doing one image; they just happen to be showing the chest frontal view and the abdomen anteroposterior view both on the same image. My question is, does anyone else think this is wrong? I believe in order to genuinely charge for both of these exams, you should do two separate images. Does anyone disagree?
