77003, 77002 and 76000 are the most popular. Its important to check CCI edits with the procedure code performed. If it doesnt bundle with the procedure code then the ASC will bill it with the TC Modifier. Keep in mind that for Medicare patients these codes all have N1 payment indicator and therefore not reimburseable by Medicare but other commericial payors and workers comp do pay on these codes.

For instance: 62311 epidural injection w/fluoro you would bill
62311
77003-TC

Hope this helps
Mary
