    Default Temp pacer placed, need fluroscopic guid

    AAPC: Back to School
    Would anyone know if I can bill for the Fluoroscopic guidance when a 6fr electrode is placed into the RV with low thresholds and excellent capture. I know the code to bill for placing the temp pacer, but don't know if the FG is billable as well.

    Yes, you may bill 71090-26 with a temporary pacemaker insertion as well if documented.
