    Default Breast biopsy ?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is it true that US guidance 76942 is included in 19102?

    Not that I'm aware of. I always code 76942 in addition to the biopsy if the use of ultrasound guidance is documented.
    There are no CCI edits on the use of those codes together.
