Question:

Can I bill a fluoroscopy code such as 77002-26 when I do a transsphenoidal pituitary tumor removal? Or, how about billing 77003-26 when I do a discectomy?

Answer:

Actually, use of fluoroscopy for localization or to help you perform a surgical procedure is included in the global surgical package for that surgical CPT code (e.g., 61548, 63030) and not separately billable by the surgeon.
