Billing for “Icy Green” Dye

October 15, 2020

Question:
The surgeon did a robotic/laparoscopic cholecystectomy and cholangiogram with icy green and firefly identification of biliary anatomy. He billed a 47563.  Can he can bill separately for the icy green and firefly dye?

Answer:
Billing for indocyanine (ICG) or Firefly TM fluorescence is bundled into 47563 laparoscopic cholecystectomy with cholangiogram and is not separately billable.
