:confused:I just started at this cardiology clinic. So, I'm a newbie. Right now one of the doc's thinks he has been selecting the wrong CPT code on the fee slip for left heart catheterization/selective coronary angiography/left ventriculogrophy....he's been using 93452 and now is thinking it should be 93458???? I don't have access to anything except what definition is in the CPT book.
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

93458

We use 93458 for left heart cath with coronary angiography and left ventriculogram. I hope this helps.

Cardiac Cath's made easy

Betty,
You can also go to my website, www.terryfletcher.net and download my Cardiac Cath Crosswalk. It shows you what the old (2010 codes) were and how to crosswalk to the new 2011 codes. Just makes it easier. There is one there too for Peripheral.

Good Luck. Once you get the hang of it, you will find it to be much easier.
Terry
