Help with 73620 xray foot 2 views

  1. Default Help with 73620 xray foot 2 views
    Medical Coding Books
    Question if the doctor is taking one view of the left foot and one view of the right foot on the same film, how would you bill this?

    I would bill 73620 LT and 73620 RT. Do you agree?

    You need to add modifier 52 to each of those since he did not do 2 views of each foot.
    If this is really a bilateral joint study, then consider 77077 instead (coded just once.)
