Thread: Nuclear Stress Testing

    Default Nuclear Stress Testing

    AAPC: Back to School
    My physicians do outpatient and inpatient stress testings at several local hospitals. They are telling me that they can bill for the same codes as the hospital with a 26 modifier. What are the proper codes for a nuclear stress test in a hospital setting? Thanks

    What codes are you using? All codes would be the same not matter where they are done. Looks like they want to split bill. You need to use same codes as the hospital bills out.

    We always bill:

    78452-26 - Multi Spect at stress and rest
    93016 - ETT Supervision
    93018 - ETT Interpretation
