Srinivasa Posted Mon 19th of March, 2012 04:25:36 AM

My Nurse do an EKG for patients coming with significant chest pain complaint and also for patients coming for ADHD evaluation with f/h of Cardiac disease. I also interpret them with out any Cardiology consult.

What CPT and ICD codes should I use for this service.( including doing EKG and interpreting the EKG).

Again we need detail documentation to suggest the CPT for the above case.
E/M service - 99212-99214 (subject to documentation)
EKG - 93000-93042 (subject to documentation and Number of leads used for EKG).
