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