    I am used to coding CPT codes, but need to code Revenue code in this case. Here are my CPT codes:

    45385
    45380-59
    43235-51

    Are revenue codes 750 or 759, or both? Or what is the answer? Help....

    Well -- if you need revenue codes you must be billing on a ubo4 which means you are billing for the facility.

    Your revenue codes are 490 for each line you bill
    implants are rev code 278 usually but not always
    fluoro has a different revenue code and so does anesthesia or conscious sedation services, but for the codes you listed -- each one is rev code 490

    hope this helps

    Revenue code 490 is usually only used for an ASC, which is what I bill for, and what we use, so if you are billing for an ASC, this is correct. The 750 and 759 are described as gastrointestinal services - general classification and gastrointestinal services - other. These would be used in a hospital or other facility type setting. :0)
