Pt had L&R heart cath with LV gram - 93461
also had Non selective LIMA angiogram - we've been told this is included in cath.
Is the L subclavian angiogram billable as 36215?
We have a coder who comes in one day a week and this is how she coded this procedure.
Thanks.:confused:

The LIMA injection is part of the heart cath (grafts), and it does not have to be selective injection of the LIMA. 36215 is also not billable.
