    Have you seen 71023 billed with LHCs and stents on a regular basis. Is this appropriate? I know 76000 is bundled, but 76000 says "other than cardiac fluoro".

    My experience is that fluoro is bundled into the heart cath/ stent placements.

    I agree with Jim. Use of fluorscopy is bundled with the heart cath and you cannot bill separately for it.
