    Default Per 2012 Guidelines...

    Page 319 of the 2012 CPT book... "Fluoroscopy (for localization) may be used in the placement of injections reported with 62310 - 62319, but is not required. ......." The body of the dictation has to include information that the fluoroscopy was used if using 77003.

    You can definitely bill a 77003 with either code and expect reimbursement, the trick is the insurance. There is no way to unbundle the two when billing medicare but a private insurance like BCBS will pay for fluoro with the epidural. You just have to know the insurance since they all can differ so much!
