Help with c/s flex and extention billing

Suzanne Posted Wed 03rd of November, 2010 04:32:31 AM

Can you bill '72052' and '72050 together. To me it seems like this is a duplicate of views. A total of 6 views were taken.

If the documentation supports that The Six Views include Flexion and Extension studies and another Four-View study is performed at the same session by the same physician, then we should bill only 72052.

But if both the services are performed in different sessions and for different reasons,etc, then we can bill both but we need to use modifier 59 with 72050.
