Hi,
How would you code this particular cath?
-LHC with ventriculography
-Left coronary angiography
-Right coronary angiography
-intervention on mid RCA; balloon angioplasty, thrombectomy, stent.
-intervention on proximal RCA; thrombectomy, stent.
-intervention on distal RCA: balloon angioplasty.

Help. how would you code this?

Thanks,
Amy:confused:

Without the report I would say:

92980, RC
93458-26, 59

I would only code the thrombectomy if it was mechanical and not aspiration with 92973

Great answer

Thank you so much. I was leaning that way, but wasn't sure about the thrombectomy.

Thanks,
Amy

A quick follow up. Are you getting paid for both the stent and the cath when coding both?

Thank you,
Amy
