Steroid Injection

Question:
How do I code a left hip intraarticular steroid injection under fluoroscopic guidance?

Answer:
You would report CPT 20610 (Arthrocentesis, aspiration and/or injection, major joint or bursa (e.g., shoulder, hip, knee, subacromial bursa); without ultrasound guidance) for the injection and CPT 77002 for the fluoroscopic guidance which can be reported in addition to the injection.
