    Default 77427

    77427 is billed every 5 treatments has to be pos 22. Treatment plan and treatment cannot be billed on same day. some of the radiation codes fall under the DRG for the hospital inpatient.

    where would you find the Radiation CPT codes included in the Inpt DRG.
    Thanks for your help.

    Look codes up on the trailblazer website to see if it has a professional/technical reimbursement. The physician can bill the professional with a modifier 26. It is very difficult to find radiation coding information. You really need to attend a seminar put on by the AMAC or Bogardus. You can obtain all the codes and when and how to bill them.

    Radiation coding is complicated. Good Luck
