Thread: Fluoroscopy with implant removal

  1. #1

    Default Fluoroscopy with implant removal

    AAPC: Back to School
    Doc did a removal of implant from the patella. What fluoroscopy code should I use? Doc states C-arm fluoroscopic x-ray is used. I have been using cpt 20985 because 0054T was discontinued for a while, and then was added back on.

    I appreciate any info.

    If I understand you correctly, you are speaking of just flouroscopy. I would use 76000/TC.
