76942 -26 is the code I use for US guided PICC placement
check with your diagnostic ultrasound folks in imaging dept.
we charge under "ultrasound needle guidance/placement"
So can we or can we not bill for use of ultrasound at the bedside for PICC line placements? I understood that you needed to be a mid-level NP, PA or some other echelon above the RN designation if you were going to bill for ultrasound use.
I have not been billing but perhaps I should............
