Thread: Hip injection under fluoroscopy

    Default Hip injection under fluoroscopy

    AAPC: Back to School
    How do you code for a hip injection under fluoroscopy done as an outpt? Is the only code you use 20610 or does it need an additional code for the fluoro?

    20610 and 76003 for fluoriscopic guidance for needle placement.

    20610 is correct for the hip, but 76003 has been deleted and you are referred to 77002 for the fluoro,with a 26 modifier for the professional component only, if applicable.

    WOW. Thanks for bringing the old code to my attention. I hate when I grab the old books.
