Steve, do you use the 93975 for a bilateral renal artery duplex?
Thanks

I think your billing person is incorrect.  If you are doing Doppler you can charge the 93975/93976.  The radiology codes will not reimburse you the same amount and are used in a vascular lab setting for a measurement of the aorta without Doppler.

		This question is for Frank West or anyone is is up on the newest billing codes for vascular labs
		 
		Our billing person has told us the 9 codes that we have been using on  renal duplex scans must now be changed to the 7 codes.  I don't want to make these changes without confirmation from someone that is up to date on current vascular billing codes.   Thanks for this forum and any help you can offer. 
		 
		NATIVE RENAL ARTERY EXAM: 

		We currently have our native renal artery exam under the CPT code 93975 and 93976.

		We were told that we need to change this to 76770 for the complete exam and 76775 for a limited exam.

		RENAL TRANSPLANT VASCULAR LAB: 

		CPT code 76778 is being used for the complete and limited exam right now. 

		We need to change this to 76776 for a complete transplant exam and 76775 for a limited exam.
