Hello - Can someone please tell me or guide me to documentation stating that a temp. pacer removal is not coded? I see lots of input stating that it is not to be coded, but no references as to how this decision was made and I am not having any luck finding documentation anywhere. Your help is GREATLY appreciated!!!

I don't think you may find anything. I've never had luck anyway. The code description states "temporary". It is assumed it is going to be removed as well and I think the work of that is included.

CPT Assistant June 2000 Vol 10 issue 6 Intracardiac Electrophysiology Update—Part 1 of 2
Table of Intracardiac Electrophysiologic Reporting—At a Glance

Under removal it states "Do not report." and "Included in 33210".

Hope this helps!
