Hi All

I was hoping that someone might be able to help me out with coding an insertion of a temp pacer and the reposition the ventricular lead.

The problem is this was done because the original pacer and lead malfunctioned.

We are thinking that 33210-59 33249?

If more information is needed please contact me. Could use any help.
Thanks a bunch

Hello, the temp pacer code 33210 is ok but the 33249 is for a ICD insert. You need to look at procedure 33215, repositioning of previous pacemaker or ICD electrode. Now, if this is a Left Ventricular lead then you would need to look at code 33226.

Hope this helps!:p
