How do we bill When a primary care doctor orders a bone density study (and a vertebral fracture analysis and two different physicians read the studies. In 2015 these two studies can be combined (77085). However, if read by two different physicians (radiologist reads the 77086 and an endocrinologist reads the 77080, what is the correct way to bill?

Yes you are correct about code 77085. However,in this case the two different physicians would need to bill their respective services performed.
77086 by the radiologist and 77080 by the endocrinologist.
