    Default EKGs
    Medical Coding Books
    Our division is considering having the EKGs read by the same doctor who performs the visit/consult that day & wants to see if this will be bundled or if a modifier applies? Does anyone think this will affect reimbursement adversely to bill together by same doc with same diagnosis?

    Are these visits/consults, etc done in the office setting? We have doctors that read EKG's and see the patient (in the office) on the same day and we just append a 25 modifier on the E/M visit. We have not had any reimbursement issues. Hope this helps...
