    They show to be under NCCI edits but billable with a modifier. To bill the EKG separately you'd have to have a different reason for the EKG. Say for example the patient has bradycardia and for that reason has a PM but comes in with Atrial fibrillation. You could put a -59 on the 93000 and see if it will get paid. In my experience our EKG's are for the same dx as the PM or ICD so we do not bill separately for them. We only bill for our device ck code.
