    Default "Mobile X-ray"

    AAPC: Back to School
    If an x-ray tech goes to a skilled nursing facility to do x-rays, is there a CPT code for setting up the equipment, is it even billable? (the procedure will be being billed as global, he will be doing everything)

    There is actually a HCPCS code for that - Q0092. The lay description basically says it must done under the supervision of a physician, must be medically necessary to take it to the patient's place of residence, etc. It also says to use R0070 (one patient) or R0075 (multiple patients) for deliverying the equipment.

    Hope this helps,
