In what instance can these to codes be billed together? My provider wants billed for both but I believe that 77081 takes care of both.:cool:

Your thoughts?

According to AMA, ACR, and CMS you cannot code both of these codes - 77080 includes one or more sites and that includes peripheral sites if done at the same times as axial sites.

77080 + 77081

77080 and 77081 were billed together. Insurance paid for 77081 and denied 77080. How could you correct this or not? Confused!
