    Default 93000 bundled into procedure codes

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is anyone else getting a CCI bundling denial when billing 93000 with various office procedures including 69210? I dont understand why this is bundled and applying modifier 59 to 93000 seems like such a waste to me.

    If the office procedure was 69210, what was the reason for doing 93000. I have noticed that more payers are requiring distinct diagnosis codes for this particular CPT code. Generally at this point, if there is not a cardiac reason to perform an EKG, then it is not performed as it will not be paid.
