I have personally never heard of using units on an EKG.

Hi Michele,

I do no idea about 2 units but still we have a doubt how do we process the 2 EKGs claim to insurance ?

Based on what you are describing the 76 modifier sounds more appropriate than using units.  Quite honestly I believe that it may be denied either way and an appeal will be required.  Each carrier will handle it differently and may or may not find in favor of the appeal.
