Help! my adm wants to know why we are billing differently.
The facility is billing 93925 & 93979, were we (the radiologists) are only billing 93925. I would like you opinion what you would. Also does any one have any good documentation regaurding when and when not to bill 93979 w/ 93925/26?

exam: Bi Lwr Ext Art study

findings: arterial duplex doppler of both lower extremities was performed.

Right leg: Aortoilial inflow is normal. Triphasic waveforms are present down to the tibial vessels.

Left Leg:Aortoilial inflow is normal. Triphasic waveforms are present down to the tibial vessels.

Impression: Normal Arterial runoff

Also the only tech worsheet that was given to us was for the Lower Ext Art. I believe that only proximal thigh Aortoiliac vessels were scanned-- is this enough to bill the 93979. I always thought proximal thigh Aortoiliac vessels were included in 93925. Plus there is no mention of inflow outflow any where.... Help! my adm wants to know why we are billing differently.
