lhc 93458
stent to mid first diagonal 92928
stent to the mid lad 92929

is this right???
thanks

Yes, you're correct, you might wanna add modifier 59 on your LHC if it's really diagnostic. Also, if the stent is DES, you might have to code it on C9600-C9608.

Diagonal is a branch of the LAD. So the numbers should be reversed. LHC - 93458-XU, 92928-LD or C9600-LD for DES, and 92929-LD for diagonal branch or C9601-LD for drug eluting stent. (DES charges are for hospital, 92xxx is for physician)

HTH,
