93923 actually reads: Complete bilateral noninvasive physiologic studies of upper or lower extremity arteries, 3 or more levels (eg, for lower extremity: ankle/brachial indices at distal posterior tibial and anterior tibial/dorsalis pedis arteries plus segmental blood pressure measurements with bidirectional Doppler waveform recording and analysis, at 3 or more levels, or ankle/brachial indices at distal posterior tibial and anterior tibial/dorsalis pedis arteries plus segmental volume plethysmography at 3 or more levels, or ankle/brachial indices at distal posterior tibial and anterior tibial/dorsalis pedis arteries plus segmental transcutaneous oxygen tension measurements at 3 or more levels), or single level study with provocative functional maneuvers (eg, measurements with postural provocative tests, or measurements with reactive hyperemia)

 

We utilize the 93923 code for these ABI’s with toe raises (provocative maneuvers) as well.

Why would you charge a multi-level for a post exercise ABI?

There is no CPT code for toe-ups or hall walking.

After seeing that CPT code 93924 cannot be used for hallway walking or "toe-up" exercise, only treadmill or hyperemia when completing an ABI with exericse test, does anyone still use the toe-up technique? If so, which CPT code is used?


Thanks in advance
