EKG done on same day as Interrogation cardiac device evaluation

Date: Aug 25, 2021

Question:

Are there any billing guidelines regarding this issue? Is EKG 93010 considered to be part of the interrogation cardiac device evaluation (e.g., 93279) and not billable with device? We get an NCCI edit that 93010 has unbundle relationship with the procedure 93279. The procedures are performed on the same DOS.
