    Unhappy EKG Interps 93010

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am getting a denial for duplicate charges when the office bills out a 93010 twice in one day with the modifer 76 on the second interp. The physician is on a rotation at the hospital and is doing the interp on these EKGs. Can you only bill out one interp per day no matter how many you read for that particular patient

    You were correct to be reporting the second 93010 code with modifier -76.

    I do this when I have more than 1 on one day and so far haven't had issues....
