I am getting conflicting information. Can I bill 64483 with 77003??
Claim was denied, saying 64483 inclusive of 77003, but research shows I can bill the two together. Can anyone help answer this?

64483 actually states Injection(s), anesthetic agent and/or steriod, transforaminal epidural, WITH IMGAING GUIDANCE (FLUROSCOPY OR ct ); lumbar or sacral, single level
so the two can not be billed together

Depends on what your date of service is. If it was after January 01/2011, then no you can't bill separately for the fluoroscopy, but if it was prior than it can be....check with your payor too.

I agree with Diane that you canot bill for those seperately. The revised text states "Imaging guidance(fluoroscopy or CT) and any injection of contrast are inclusive components of 64479-64484.
