We have a new physician that joined our practice and he is stating you can bill for interpreting the fluoroscopy. I have never heard of this. He is trying to use the cpt code 72040 (xray cervical 2-3 views) and/or 72070 for thoracic. We only have a fluoroscopy machine. It sounds to good to be true. Has anyone else billed for this code when performing an LES (62323) and Facet Blocks (64493). We have always been under the assumption this is for needle guidance. I do know you cant bill for the 77003 when performing these procedures but need to have documentation that it was performed using fluoroscopy.
