Our office has always coded PCI of RI as LC stent placement, billing for only one stent placement per coding quidelines. A question has been brought up by one of our docs as to whether we can bill separately if a stent was placed in the RI and the LC at same operative session. I thought not, but would like further info on it from other coders. Thanks pscanish:confused:

Jim,

You seem to be a great source for the Interventional Cardiology. What resources did you use to get yourself so well educated about all this stuff. I would like a better understanding and you are welcome to e-mail me at amymujkic@yahoo.com. Thanks.
