Can we code for fluoroscopic guidance (77002) for an injection into the hip bursa (20610)?
Yes, if imaging guidance is performed you may report 77002 in addition to the injection of the hip bursa. Note that in 2017, 77002 has been revised and I now an add-on code. Directly under the code, CPT lists primary codes that are appropriately coded with 77002. Code 20610 as well as the other joint injection codes (20600 small joints and 20605 intermediate joints) are listed as appropriate primary codes.
