CAN WE BILL FOR AN AUTONOMIC/EMG ON THE SAME DAY? AUTONOMIC CODES WE USE ARE 93660, 95921, 95922, 95923. THE EMG CODES ARE 95885, 95886. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Hi, you can bill both services (Autonomic & EMG) together on the same day but please keep in mind:
1. Since 95885 and 95886 are Add-on codes, you need to bill their pimary code first (Nerve conduction studies) from series 95907-95913 (please see instruction below code 95886).
2. Code 95922 has CCI Edit with 93660. If you have justification to code both, use modifier with 95922 (column 2 code).
3. Codes 95921 and 95922 cannot be billed together as per AMA's instructions (please see instruction below code 95922).
