i have a provider wanting me to substantiate the # views taken vs. the # units we're able to bill on this. It is my understanding that this code means that as long as 3 views were taken, you can only bill for one unit regardless of the # of additional views (unless its bilateral or pre/post reduction). Anyone have any insight/links confirming this?

Thanks!

The description says minimum of 3 views which means 3 or more views = 1 code (unless bilateral or done in different sessions like you said).

Somewhere and I wish I could remember but I will look in my old notes and see ... however in the meantime, somewhere it is written specifically that x-rays may be billed with units=1 only and always. Try doing a search for radiology procedures and units, and I will see if I can find my notes. But perhaps this will help.
