What CPT code is everyone using for insertion of the Impella 2.5 device? I have seen some use 93799, 33999, and 92970. We also bill the Tandem heart and are not sure what code to use for this either. Please help on this as all these different Cardio assist devices are very confusing! :confused:


Thanks!

The manufacturer's recommendation is to bill 33999 for Impella and our research concurs with their recommendation. Other CPT codes come close, but not close enough to accurately describe this procedure at this point in time.
