Is anyone billing for docs using fluoroscopy (intra-operatively) in the ER or outpatient hospital setting via mini c-arm. Physician does the work & official report (no radiologist involved).

I've read the Sept 2006 Ortho Coding Alert and the 2007 Vol.10 follow-up article and am still unsure when the physician can bill for mini c-arm usage in the ER or hospital setting.

Can anyone shed some light on this for me please? Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Lisa

The physician is able to bill for the professional component of the procedure (modifier 26), but not for the technical component (TC).
