I was wondering if someone could help me. I work in an ASC and we are having trouble billing for the fluoroscopic guidance in LESIs, CESIs, TESCIs, stimulators, pumps, etc. Can anyone please tell me which flouro code you use and the revenue code that you use? Thank you very much.

The cpt code would be 77003 - but most insurance companies will not pay you for it. I believe the rev code is 320, but not 100% sure on that.

Fluoroscopy

Yes the code is 77003 and 320 revenue code.....Medicare will not pay for it considers it part of the ASC reimbursement, but some private carriers will pay, workman's companies, and liability insurance (auto) companies will pay. Even the TC modifier will not get it paid by Medicare, but be sure to use it with all these others... you should get some reimbursement.

Thank you, very good information!!....

Correct me if I'm wrong but this is what I understand from the information provided:


"For every(and I believe this will include a 77003 if performed) CPT code listed on the UB-04 claim form, the CPT code for procedure(s) performed should be listed with a 490 revenue code for ASC surgical procedures". :confused: I think the 320 is used by radiology providers. Anyway, we don't get paid :( just for auto or work comp.

thanks again!!!

no--77003 is a radiology code---therefore the 320 is the appropriate revenue code. Physicians/radiologists do not use revenue codes. Revenue codes are for facilities such as ASCs
