Heart Cath Interpretation/Report

July 27, 2010 @ 4:06 PM Reply  |  Email Friend   |  |Print  |  Top

Has anyone ever billed out CPT 93555 with modifiers 26 and 52?  Our intervention cardiologist is at times called upon by the performing cath cardiologist to interpret and report on the heart cath image findings via our PACS system (the intervention cardiologist not present during procedure).  I am looking for any feedback from individuals who code for cardiology, preferrably...but, all feedback welcomed.  Thank you.

My office ususally bills this with a 26 modifier. I have never seen it billed with a 52.
