This is a hospital based IR lab. What codes should we be using for a procedure in which we checked the J Tube under flouro?
We were thinking exam code of 76080 and wondering if we can use the procedure component of 49465 which is contrast injection for a tube?

49465 covers contrast injection(s) for radiological evaluation of an existing tube, including image documentation and report.
So, I think we can't bill 76080 with 49065
