An anesthesiology group in MT that we bill for wants to start using the code 76942 with a 26 modifier. Does anyone have experience billing for this and are you getting payments? Thanks.

Make sure you check the CPT Diagnostic Ultrasound section guidelines:

"...Ultrasound guidance procedures also require permanently recorded images of the site to be localized, as well as a documented description of the localization process, either separately or within the report of the procedure for which the guidance is utlized..."

Many anesthesia providers will have difficulty with the permanently recorded image requirement and perhaps the documentation requirements also!
