• 1.  Detailed FTA

    I appreciate the discussions and guidance on performance of detailed FTA in this forum. One question that has come up for our practice is whether or not you can bill the combination of the 76801 + 76813 for a detailed exam, if the NT component is suboptimal. If we are performing the study for detailed indication and the NT is sub-optimal, should we be billing the 76801 only? The White paper on this topic seems to say that all the required elements of each code must be met. Since the 76813 requires the NT, do you recommend adjusting billing when the NT is suboptimal or can the combined code be used if you indicate it was suboptimal?
