It appears that someone did a lousy job of repairing the crack in this rock since I left New England 21 years ago!

Hi Nancy,

 

Thanks so much clearing up the matter for me.  I did try to look at the archives but my computer was stubbornly slow yesterday afternoon.  Thanks for taking the time to answer me and Happy Thanksgiving.;)

Check the archives- we did a big discussion on this a while back. 93965 is strictly for plethysmography. It does not refer to valsalva or other augmentation maneuvers done with duplex. It can not be charged with 93971 or 93970 and should never be charged unless you use plethysmography.

Hello All,

 

I was under the impression that for reflux exams, 93965 was the CPT code to use.  However, when I read 93965 and 93970, they both say “response to compression and other maneuvers”.  Is there something I am not seeing?  Short of using impedance plethysmography, etc., they both appear to be one in the same.  Can anyone enlighten me before I hit the turkey and cranberries??!  Pat
