In an ASC setting am I correct in coding the following procedure with 20610?
DIAGNOSIS: ARTHRITIS RIGHT HIP
1. C-ARM LOCALIZATION RIGHT HIP
2. ARTHROGRAM RIGHT HIP
3. STEROID INJECTION RIGHT HIP
TECHNIQUE: The patient was brought to the procedure room and placed supine on the OR table. The right hip position was verified with the C-arm. The hip was prepped and draped in a routine fashion. A skin wheal was raised for anesthesia and a 22G needle inserted into the hip joint. The position was verified with an arthrogram. Depo-Medrol 1 cc and 1 cc Lidocaine was then introduced into the hip. The needle was withdrawn. A sterile dressing was applied. She was transferred to the cart and sent back to the recovery room to be dismissed.
Thanks for any assistance.
