doctor did 2 sonograms. one was to evaluate fetal position, size, activity
etc which would be a 76815. In the second sonogram the doctor visualized
the cervix (not the ovaries). Pt had bleeding and also a poor obstetrical
history (previous abruption). Would it be ok to bill a transvaginal
(76830) in this case in addition to 76815? thanks annie

also you would need two separate u/s reports.
(just my two cents)

Good idea, I agree, that would be in your best interest, if it goes through internal cliinical review there will be some explanation.

I would also use separate diagnosis and I would use a 59 modifier on the
least expensive one.

Yes, you should be able to bill for both in this case. It is appropriate.
