Could you point me in a direction regarding the use of 77003 with the 62311? I see an NCCI edit, but the CPT description does not indicate fluoroscopy is included. Can fluoroscopy be billed with LESI?

Yes you are correct, NCCI edit restricts the use of 77003 with 62311. This is because epidural injections are administered under fluoroscopic guidance. You may refer to the following link for details: https://www.supercoder.com/coding-newsletters/my-pain-management-coding-alert/reader-questions-match-rvus-for-62310-and-62311-to-correct-pay-for-77003-147503-article
Hope this helps!
