This is a question for those of you who code for the hospital side. When a patient has a CTA of Coronary Arteries (0146T) should you also code for the low osmolar contrast media with a Q9949. This is a new area for me and I am a little confused.

Hi,
I code for a large cardiovascular practice. We actually do these ct's in our office. We bill 0146T with Q9950 and we get paid by most ins. co. Your Q code depends on the amount of contrast per ml. Hope this helps.
