Radiation Oncology CPT 77263

Best answers
Hi All,

I have a physician who believes that for a patient receiving brachytherapy you can charge CPT 77263 at each brachytherapy visit. I am not seeing any information that this can be done. 77263 is for complex therapeutic radiology treatment planning. I believe that this can be charged anytime there is a change in the treatment planning, not each time a brachytherapy session is performed.

Is there any new information that states a new treatment planning can be charged at each brachytherapy visit? If so, can you give me any information on a website? Or, if not can you advise on how I can explain to the doctor that he cannot code this out?

Any help would be appreciated!
