I need help with coding this situation! Our surgeon placed a catheter for thrombolysis and we coded 37211. However, the radiologist interpreted the fluoroscopic images and also billed 37211. Medicare will not pay that code to both providers. Is the radiological supervision and interpretation separately reportable if performed by the radiologist and not the surgeon who placed the catheter? Is there a different CPT code they should be using or a specific modifier to show that they just did the interpretation? I know that radiological supervision and interpretation is included in the code, but it was performed by a separate provider! HELP!!
