    Question 93458 and 93571

    AAPC: Back to School
    How should i code this procedure: Cardiologist A performs a LHC with angio and LV gram then sends the films over for Cardiologist B, who happens to be in the same practice to review the films. Cardiologist A decides to send the patient over to Cardiologist B to perform the FFR. FFR, 93571, is a stand alone code so how does this work? Will MCR recognize that same doc is same practice and since 93458 was already performed 93571 can be done without adding another CPT??? HELP!

    You can bill the 93571 for Dr. B. We have had to appeal some of them but they do eventually get paid. Hope this helps!

    Default Code 93458 & 93571

    How do you show that the 93571 was done by another provider in the same practice?
