if multiple ECGs are done on the same day, which modifier is appropriate 76 or 59 to use?

When more than one ECG is performed with the following CPT-4 codes for the same recipient, by the same provider, on the same date of service and at different times, each ECG may be separately reimbursed when billed with modifier 76. To bill multiple ECGs, providers should enter the appropriate electrocardiogram CPT-4 code(s) on the claim with modifier 76 and the number of ECGs performed in the Days or Units field (Box 24G) on the CMS-1500 claim or Service Units field (Box 46) on the UB-04 claim.
