MPPR rules regarding cardiovascular and diagnostic imaging procedures

Kelly Posted Thu 10th of January, 2013 20:41:50 PM

Are the following procedure codes affected with the MPPR rules? We perform these services in the office and need to know if we can schedule any of these services together. We obviously want to avoid a reduction in payment. I have not been able to find a list of what codes are affected.
