Our office performs ultrasounds in the office, and the doctors now want to perform a transvaginal ultrasound on all of our OB's in addition to the Abdominal ultrasound at the 20 week visit. The doctors want to check for cervical length on all patients, even if they do not have a history of preterm labor or previous cervical weakness. My concern is that the insurance companies will not recognize this additional service if there is no history of a complication.
Would we bill for 76811 and then 76817 with a 51 modifier?
