Are thrombolytics and nitro separately billable during a cardiac cath?

I have a MD who feels they are. My understanding is that these are part of the procedure.

In what instance would these codes, 37202 and 92975 be separately billable?

Thanks

Marty,
The code 37202 I have never used so not sure what to tell you on that one.







If the cardiologist does a coronary thrombolysis during a cardiac catheterization or PTCA the thrombolysis is billable but you have to use a thrombosis dx code.

If a stent is done 92980 it is bundled -- CCI edits .
