Do the new entire spine x-rays include supine and erect views? I have a provider who wants ap and lateral views but both supine and erect of the entire spine for scoliosis evaluation. What can I bill for this?

Yes, the new scoliosis series (CPT code 72081 to 72084) include supine and erect views. If the provider is performing AP and lateral views of the spine in supine and erect positions, then these will be considered two views only, so the appropriate code (as per above scenario) would be CPT code 72082.
HOPE THIS HELPS!
