If you're going to bill for it, I would say yes you need to document it. Also make sure you pay attention to the place of service, because there are 3 EKG codes, one for a global service, one for professional, and one for technical and you dont use -26/-TC. Remember if it's not documented, it didnt happen. I would make sure that any documentation you do get includes the tracing, as well as some form of written report detailing the findings, as that supports the physician component. As far as the diagnosis, I'm not sure about that, anybody else have any thoughts? Hope I was able to help a little!
