Partial testing
« on: March 18, 2016, 10:02:21 AM »
When performing nuclear stress test on patients over a specific size, we split the test into two sessions.  Patient no-showed 2nd half.  Can we bill for the first half with modifer 53?  Thanks!

That appears to be the best option based on what you are describing.  I found the following information that might be helpful:  http://www.wpsmedicare.com/j5macpartb/resources/modifiers/modifier-53.shtml
