    Question pediatic cardiology

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can I code 93568 LT and RT with 93580? The CPT codebook says 93568 code first (93451-93461, 93560-93533)

    i would also like to know how else to code CPT 93580 with 93568. Carriers deny the 93568 b/c it's an add on and should be billed with 93566-93568 or 93530-93533 or 93451-93461

    Have you tried using modifier -59 with the 93580? I have read that both procedures can be billed.
