When the doctor does a sonohysterogram in the office we book a 30 minute appointment. He does an exam, performs the procedure and then sees the patient in his office to discuss the results. We bill 76831, 58340 and either a 99213 or 99214 with a 25 modifier. Some insurance companies do not want to pay for the separate office visit stating it is included with the procedure. He dictates in his notes how long he counsels the patient in the office, any advice on whether it is appropriate to bill for an office visit in addition to the procedure? Thank You!
