    Default 93325 inclusive to 76820/76821
    Medical Coding Books
    Can anyone fax me documentation on 93325 being inclusive to 76820 or 76821 when done on the same day/visit. I do not see it listed in the CCI edits, nor the Coding Companion to OB/GYN. I need a reliable source document to show staff. Please help!!

    This is an add-on code that you are suppose to use with one of the primary procedures. Here is the list:
    Echocardiography

    Code first (76825-76828, 93303-93304, 93308, 93312, 93314-93315, 93317, 93350-93351)

    P.S.
    Add-on codes are not reimbursed unless billed with primary procedure.

    Yes. I am well aware of that. I am having trouble when we bill a 76825 with add-on 93325 AND a 76820 or 76821 on the same day. The denials are saying that 93325 is inclusive to the 76820/76821 even though I am billilng the 93325 as an add-on code to the 76825.

    I am getting that same rejection but have not been able to find the documentation to support. Any ideas!
