Is it acceptable to bill 71010 with 74020? Shouldnt 74022 be used instead?

Chris Posted Fri 06th of January, 2012 21:58:36 PM

The description of code 74022 appears to included the description of services provided under codes 71010 and 74020. Is it acceptable to bill 71010 and 74020 on the same date of service, same provider and no other modifier?

If performed in the same session, then you can bill 74022, but in different session, then you can bill individually.
