    Just looking at some of the posting ? 's and saw that you were billing out a 77031-26. I was billing our Stereotactics with a 19103 & a 19295 so is this correct and in addition I bill the 77031 with the 26 modifier. I code and bill for general surgeon. Appreciate your input as I am a new coder/biller. Cricket

    I noticed that too. I asked our surgeon about this code and his reply was that was something that the radiologist does and that we should not code that.

    Check out codes 19103 and 77031-26. This is how we bill Stereotactic breast bx at our practice.

    We were given codes 19103 and 19295 by the company that supplies the equipment and trains the surgeon.
