Bundled x-ray codes?

    Hey does anyone know if 74240 can be billed with 74245? I would think that the 74245 would cover everything? Am I understanding this wrong?

    Please help!

    Thanks

    Hi. 74240, 74241, and 74245 are stand alone codes only- so you are right- they can't be billed together

    You are right - they build on each other.
    Plain upper GI - 74240; upper GI with KUB 74241, upper GI with small bowel follow-through - 74245.
    (same thing for 74246-74249)
    You pick the one that covers all that you did.
