    Question follow up CXR

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is it appropriate to charge for a CXR following a PICC placement to check patency?
    Input on Medicare and commercial payers would be great!!

    Thanks in advance

    Was the PICC line performed with fluoroscopic guidance?

    Also, is the provider who performed PICC line same provider who is reading x-ray?
