Can anyone help me with a question that keeps coming up with regards to billing US guidance when performing CPT codes 10022 and 19083. My physican says he can bill for US, the code states that image guidance is included.
In the CPT book under code 10022 it states ( For radiological supervision and interpretation see 76942,77002,77012,77021)
This is confusing. Any help in clarifying this would be greatly appreciated)
Thanks in advance for the help

CPT code 10022 can be billed separately with CPT codes 76942,77002,77012 and 77021 as it does not show bundling in CCI edit.
Also, CPT code 19083 cannot be billed with ultrasound guidance separately as it gets bundled in the service of the procedure.
