I am preparing myself for the 2015 new codes. If a patient has a screening mammogram(G0202)with the 3D Tomosynthesis(77063)and radiologist is requesting a unilateral(G0206) do we still add the GG modifier on the G0206?

Yes, you will still have to append GG modifier to indicate that screening mammogram and diagnostic mammogram performed on the same patient, same day.

Thank you. Now, along with the additional view (G0206-GG) do I add 77063 as well or will it be considered a duplicate code since it's been coded with the screening mammogram.

You will use code 77063 only once. Thanks !!
