Could you tell me where I might obtain proof of this? My lab is using duplex to obtain waveforms and charging 93925 and or 26, I have tried many times to tell them this is not acceptable when the study is normal.
Either way is an acceptable method for obtaining Doppler waveforms.
However, in case there is a question about the reimbursement portion of
this procedure in our audience, obtaining isolated waveforms using a duplex
ultrasound machine during the course of a physiologic exam does not
constitute performance of an Extremity Duplex Arterial Exam. So the 93922,
93923 and 93924 codes are still applicable, not 93925 or 93926.
