Thread: 93230 coding for 48 or 78 hours

    Smile 93230 coding for 48 or 78 hours

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have asked this question before, but I need some clarification. CPT code 93230 if for 24 hour monitoring. If a patient is being monitored for 48 or 72 hours how would I code.
    Would I code 93230 for each date; or would I code 93230 for the initial date, and 93230 modifiers 52 for the subsequent days?
