    PICC Line Placement

    Proper coding for a peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) line, or midline catheter, depends on patient age, as follows:
    36568 Insertion of peripherally inserted central venous catheter (PICC), without subcutaneous port or pump; younger than 5 years of age
    36569 Insertion of peripherally inserted central venous catheter (PICC), without subcutaneous port or pump; age 5 years or older
    Per CPT Assistant (November 2012), “‘Midline’ central venous catheters may be inserted in either an inpatient or outpatient setting.”
