Thread: CPT codes 73130 & 73140

  1. #1

    Default CPT codes 73130 & 73140

    AAPC: Back to School
    I really hope this does not sound dumb, but when the description in the code reads minimum 2 views does that mean that 2 views must be done? We are having a discussion about this and I think that you can bill up to 2 views as long as it is documented but that two views do not have to be done & someone else says that two views must be done. Please help. Thanks

    73130 is for 3 or more views of the hand. If there are 1-2 views done you would use 73120.

    73140 is min 2 vws of the finger, however unlike 73130 there is not an alternative CPT for lesser views.
