    I believe the correct coding for screening direct digital images is G0202 and if CAD is also used, add on code 77052. You would not use G0202 AND 77057.

    Exclamation G0202 with 77052 and 77056-GG billed on the same day
    Hi,

    I have a question for people coding mammograms, can we bill use G0202 and 77052 (for CAD) and have a diagnostic mammogram 77056 (with GG) billed on the same day. I am facing denials from some commercial carriers when we bill G0202 (digital screening) 77052 (CAD) and 77056-GG (bilateral diagnostic) on the same day, could not find any reference on the net, need help on this urgently.
    Regards,

    a digital mammogram is coded to G0202
    if there is CAD performed along with the mammogram then we also code 77052 with screening mammogram.
