When reporting an epidural percutaneous implantation of a neurostimulator electrode my physician wants to bill fluoro. Can we bill separately for fluoroscopic guidance?
Fluoroscopic guidance is included in implanting the neurostimulator electrode(s) using CPT code 63650 (Percutaneous implantation of neurostimulator electrode array, epidural). In addition 63650 includes removal of the trial leads.
