Jim Pawloski, CIRCC my question is then. Can 99152 & 93458 be billed together OR is the 99152 only when my Doctors do a stent placement?
Catheter positions are part of the heart cath code (or bundled).

Would you code 36140 when the Rt radial arterial access was abandoned after the 6 F sheath was inserted into the rt radial artery? I normally charge 36140 as it is a separately distinct access and the Rt. Radial access was not utilized for the heart cath; femoral access was utilized for the Heart Cath.
