Echocardiograms with bubble studies

    Default Echocardiograms with bubble studies
    Medical Coding Books
    I need verification on the procedure that is billed for the bubble study. Our practice is going to be doing these. I know we need to bill 93307,93320,93325
    I also think we need to bill the 90774 for the agitated saline along with the hcpcs code for the saline. Correct? Nothing has changed on this?

    Thanks

    That sounds correct to me. The hospital has specific codes for bubble/contrast echos, but not the physician side.

    Question bubble study codes vs reg codes
    I have been told that a bubble study is 93303 93320 93325, but that it is better to bill the 93307, is this true?
