Acute MI 92941


Chennai, India
Best answers
Hello team,

There is a lot of confusion about which code(s) to apply when a patient has an intervention/stent during an MI (92941) when additional branches or vessels are treated during the same procedure.

The "crosswalk" I received instructs us to use 92941 for the infarct vessel, AND 92941 for each additional branch and/or major coronary vessel treated.

Another instructs us to code 92941 for the initial, major vessel with 92929 for branch vessels and/or 92928 for additional major vessels.

The physician stented two major coronary vessels during acute MI. both the vessels were totally occluded. can i code 92941-RC, 92941-LC, 93454-xu or 92941-LC, 92928-xu-RC, 93454-xu

please suggest
