Hi,

can anyone help me.

CPT 38222 is new code in year 2018. Code 38222 is not listed as primary code to report with add on code 77002, but codes 38220 and 38221 are. Is this an oversight, or should fluoroscopy not be reported with 38222?

Got denial ... cpt 38222 paid but 77002 rejected for primary procedure code.

We are having the same issue here with Humana and Anthem Medicare replacement.
I am going to try and appeal a few.

There is no instructional notes advising you to use 77002 with 38222. I would not bill them together.
