Scenario:
The doctor is implanting a CRT, and cannot position the LV. He opt for either a His lead or a LBB lead to act as the CS, bills it as a CRT [33208 and 33225]; with the 33225 editing [looking for CS lead, and there isn't one]

OR should this be billed as 33208, with the unlisted code 33999 [inevitably will be denied]?, and because it is being billed as a dual chamber, less $$

thanks in advance

Have you considered unlisted code 33999?
