Second opinion by a Chiropractor

Medical Posted Wed 08th of June, 2011 14:02:27 PM

If a patient wants a second opinion to analyze x-rays what would the cpt code be?

SuperCoder Answered Wed 08th of June, 2011 14:20:44 PM

If a diagnostic or management question persists even after the doctor has already interpreted his/her own x-rays and written a report, a separate second opinion service is required. The radiology consultant’s second opinion can be billed as a separate service, using the -26 code, since this additional service is necessary in order to proceed with case management.

What is the CPT code?

Use the CPT code of the X-ray of respective Anatomy, as you normally bill. No other different CPT you need to bill.
