August 23, 2018

Question:
I read with interest your recent Coding Coach on anesthesia related services and CPT codes 27093 and 27095.  If our surgeon performs a hip injection using fluoroscopy should we be reporting 27093 instead of 20610 and 77002-26? We perform these in the ASC.

Answer:
No, 27093 and 27095 are injection procedures for hip arthrograms; these are not therapeutic injection codes.  Please continue to report 20610 and 77002-26 for the hip injection using fluoroscopic guidance, and refer to the April 27, 2017 Coding Coach on this subject.
