Thread: code the fluroscopy?

    Default code the fluroscopy?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi All! Quick question - Procedure: Insertion of DDD pacemaker. The op report indicates atrial and ventricular leads were placed (no mention of fluroscopy anywhere during placement) and then a notation that states "assured good position with fluroscopy". Do I code the fluroscopy?

    The S&i code 71090 should be used with pacemaker insertion code. All kinds of radio services are inclusive in this one including fluoro.
