    Patient is seen for office visit and it is determined that she needs and ultrasound. She is scheduled for a later date (week or two later) and office visit same day to discuss resultst.

    can I charge and E/M and the Ultrasound at the second visit because the doctor is disscussing the findings at that time?

    Any help or advise is much appreciated.

    Yes you can charge for the office visit and ultrasound on the same day.

    I am wondering if I can charge for both on the second day . . . on the scheduled visit several days later? I am thinking not. However . . . my physicians are challenging me and I am looking for some backup.

    Normally procedure type appointments do not support need for E/M level.
    With that being said, if the documentation supports an E/M (giving findings, plan of care and discussed with patient) apply modifier 25 and bill for both the U/S & E/M
