Hi everyone,

Need help with this claim.

Patient had the following procedures:

1. Dual Pacemaker implant
2. Left upper extremity venogram x 4

Venogram was repeated 4 times, as the surgeon was not able to access the vein.

Can we code this as 75820 x 4 as it was repeated until successful?



Appreciate your help as always,

Vidhya

Hi Robbin,

I did take a look at our previous claims.

I have been coding them separately.

Anyone else coding for this separately? Please correct me if I am wrong.


Thanks

Thank you.

The surgeon had difficulty accessing the vein and had multiple attempts until he succeeded. PM was eventually implanted for this patient.
