Question:

When a hysterosalpingogram is performed, can 76830 and 76831 be billed if documented, or is the 76830 inclusive?

Answer:

Code 76830 (ultrasound, transvaginal) should not be reported as part of the hysterosalpingogram. It may only be reported with 76831 if a diagnostic ultrasound is ordered, medically necessary, performed, and documented separately from the hysterosalpingogram. As its description states, code 76831 includes all imaging necessary for the hysterosalpingogram: Saline infusion sonohysterography (SIS), including color flow Doppler, when performed.
