    Default MRI Question

    AAPC: Back to School
    If we bill a bilateral MRI (LT and RT modifiers) should the second line item be subject to the multiple procedure reduction? I wouldn't think so, but I'm not sure.

    If it is two complete and seperate studies then reimbursement should be the same for both, with no reduction.
