    Question Need coding sequence

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am helping to identify procedures and cost for a clinical trial-phase I. This is the scenario: Procedure-Intrathecal Catheter Placement- The Codman FlexTip Plus intraspinal catheter will be inserted with fluoroscopy guidance(without contrast). The target site of insertion is between the lumbar vertebrae L3 and L4. Please help me secure the correct CPT codes. Thanks.

    I believe the CPT code for the catheter placement would be 62350 and fluoroscopy guidance is 77003

    Thanks Lorie,

    62350,77003 is exactly what I provided to the Radiology Group we are contracting to do the service, however, they state those are not codes they are familiar with, so now my question is if Radiology does not provide this service then should we be soliciting a Surgical Group? Thanks.
