I work for a primary care office and we recently hired a new doctor. She has advised that her old practice would bill both the 93000 (EKG with interpretation and report) and the 93040 rhythem ECG.
These two codes are being used when a patient presents with chest pain and a EKG is done, the provider notices an abnomality and wants to see more of the heart rythem (3 sheets are produced and interpreted)
Has anyone had any luck with billing both of these codes out. I have received a deinal stating the 93040 was part of the 93000. Is there a modifier I am missing?
Documentation shows there was a need to look further.
Thanks for any feedback.
