    Are the dye and contrast materials separately billable when performing fluorosocopy services (77002) within the rheumatology speciality practice are or the costs bundled into the procedure itself?

    Trying to find some official documentation, starting with the CPT book.

    You will not find anything in the CPT book about contrast, but contrast would be billed under Q9966.
