    Angry 76882

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi folks,

    I am doing the radiology coding , and have one doubt regarding the usage of 76882. If this limited study is performed in bilateral extremities (RT/LT UPPER EXTREMITY OR RT/LT LOWER EXTREMITY) on same DOS by same physician whether it would be appropriate to bill it twice (76882 X 2). Please help me with this clarification.

    Yes! The CPT description states 76881 and 76882 as Ultrasound, extremity, nonvascular, real-time with image documentation, so of this is done bilaterally you can code this twice and use LT/RT to differentiate the service.
