Our physcian has bought and mini c-arm to do xrays in the office. How are we to bill for this. We were told to bill 76000 but not sure on how like per image or views or different body parts do they have a different procedure code?

For the most part, billing for x-ray exams is very similar to billing for ultrasounds, in the sense that you will need to bill for an interpretation component as well as a technical one. You can refer to the books and the guidelines for the proper coding in your area. It will also be to your advantage to keep up- to- date on the Medicare guidelines for radiological services.
I will provide more info, if you need as required.
