    Question TEE probe unable to advance

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a few Transesophageal Echocardiograms here and they are dictated the same way: Despite multiple attempts, unable to advance TEE probe into esophgus...

    Does this mean I don't charge for this procedure or do I add a modifier -52??

    Can someone PLEASE help me with this
