Fiducial Placement Reply

Placement reported with unlisted code 32999...unfortunately at this time no CPT describes placement of interstitial devices outside the prostate. CT guidance reported with 77012. There is a C code for the hospital OP setting C9728 for areas other than prostate (any approach), and supply code for the markers. It's not appropriate to report the fiducial markers with a CPT 77xxx Radiation Oncology code, even though there are codes in that section that describe devices in conjunction with radiation therapy procedures.
Hope this helps!
