    Default Our GI doctors perform the fluoroscopy-

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi again, Kathleen.

    Our GI doctor had to do a stent placement, and needed to use fluoroscopy for this procedure. It is noted that a radiologist was not present but that our GI doctor alone was doing fluoroscopy. When billed 76000, it was denied, so I know the wrong code was billed, but cannot find out what I should bill-HELP!

    Is this with ERCP? If so, look at the codes 74328, 74329 or 74330 and use the -26 modifier if this is for the supervision and interp only.
