    Default Coding Mammo G0206 on same day as cpt code 77031 or 77302

    AAPC: Back to School

    Does anyone know the rule for coding cpt G0206 on the same day as 77031 or 77032. Our office was told mammograms performed after mammographic ( 77032) or stereotactic (77031) needle/wire localization is not billed separately. Also, do you know if we can bill for the G0206 if performed prior to cpt codes 77031 or 77032.

    Default G0206 vs 77031;77032

    Nope, you cannot bill G0206 w/77031;77032. 77031;77032 is considered mammographic which is conclusive with CPT G0206(diagnostic mamm).

    Hope that helps
