2017 Deleted CPT code 93965 no replacement listed


Best answers

I am curious is anyone can provide information regarding CPT 93965. I have been contacted by or vascular lab that for help regarding this code is being deleted for 2017 and there is not replacement code listed. I noticed the American College of radiology (ACR) has posted a proposal to have this code removed because it is no longer used.? My vascular lab states the use if at least once a day. I do not code for this area and am not well versed in their procedure codes but stated I would try an help. My concern is that perhaps they have been using the wrong CPT code for the procedures they are performing or this may be an error. Does anyone have any information or suggestions where I can get more information. My understanding this is a non-imaging procedure
