    not the actual fluoro but 74300-TC

    from CPT assistant:

    Year: 2000

    Issue: December

    Pages: 14

    Title: Digestive System, Surgery, 47563, 74300, 76000 (Q&A)

    Body: Coding Consultation

    Question

    A surgeon performs an outpatient laparoscopic cholecystectomy with an intraoperative cholangiogram, with fluoroscopy. Would I assign the following codes: 47563, 76000, 74300 ? Please Advice.

    AMA Comment

    It would be appropriate to report codes 47563 (assigned by the surgeon), 74300-26 (assigned by the radiologist), codes 47563 and 74300 (assigned by the hospital to capture the facility charges). It would not be appropriate to assign code 76000 as fluoroscopy is included in code 74300.

    no it does not--you are billing for the technical component--the surgeon should be capturing the professional component.

    It seems that you refer to the CPT assistant quite often....do you find it useful for ASC coding or any kind of coding that is? Where do you obtain it? I would like for our facility to purchase them if you think it's worth the money.
    Please advise....
    Thanks!
