When a provider uses contrast to confirm needle localization for: CT Guided Injections, CT Facet Injection, Fluro Facet Injection, etc. Is the contrast material billable?

Thank you for your question.
As per CPT® Guidelines, Image guidance [fluoroscopy or CT] and any injection of contrast are inclusive components of 64490-64495. Therefore, the contrast material for CT Facet Injection, Fluro Facet Injection should not be billed separately.
