Question 93526 for Medicare

Is anyone else having difficulty getting paid for 93526-26 for Medicare? It does not seem to relate to medical necessity/DX codes. What am I missing?
Thanks!

Medicare issued a new LCD for heart caths and interventional procedures (Stent, angioplasty) For the heart cath check out LCD L28244, depending on your carrier it may be a different LCD number.

Good luck!
