    Question Fluoroscopic guidance by CRNA

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a group of CRNA's that do epidural steroid injections under fluoroscopic guidance in the state of Iowa. The CRNAs are not medically directed.

    One of our providers was recently told that they could not bill for the fluoroscopic guidance without having physician supervision. Is this correct? We have not had any denials from our major payors(eg. Medicare, BCBS, ect).

    If anyone has any info that could be helpful I would appreciate it. Thank you!
