    I would say it would be fine to code the E&M with a 25 and the bladder scan.

    Question bladder scan denial

    We are currently an outpatient department of a medical center so our charges are split between facility fee and professional fee. The insurance company has paid the facility fee but is denying the professional fees. Should I have attached a modifier? Is anyone else having his problem? 51798
