Placement of IVC filter in the bilateral common iliac


Best answers
One of my doctors had planned to place an IVC filter for DVT but after measuring the IVC at greater than 30mm decided to place a IVC filter in both of the patient's commom iliac veins. He wants to code this with 37191-Insertion of intravascular vena cava filter, endovascular approach including vascular access, vessel selection, and radiological supervision and interpretation, intraprocedural roadmapping, and imaging guidance (ultrasound and fluoroscopy), when performed, twice for each filter placed, but I do not believe this is correct and the only code I can come up with is the unlisted procedure code for vascular surgery 37799. Can anyone give me any help? Thank you.
