This would not be coded as a central venous access procedure since the documentation does not support the catheter tip terminating in the subclavian or innominate vein. Usually, the internal jugular, subclavian and femoral veins are used for central line access in the ED.

Look at the venipuncture codes, 36400 or 36410 for the profee side.
