HCPCS for MUGA scans

    Question HCPCS for MUGA scans
    Medical Coding Books
    Please Help!!!

    The Cardiology Coding Alert’s 2007: Volume 10, Number 12 issue had a reader question about the HCPCS for an Ultratag kit during a MUGA scan. I have a similar question, only we do not use an Ultratag kit. We use CIS-PYRO Kit Preparation, which is a cold PYP, and Technetium Tc-99m pertechnetate. What is/are the correct HCPCS code(s) that you should charge when billing for a MUGA scan done in the physician's office using CIS-PYRO Kit Preparation and Technetium Tc-99m pertechnetate? I was told to bill A9560 and that would cover both the CIS-PYRO Kit Preparation and the Technetium Tc-99m pertechnetate, but I think we should bill A9560 for the kit and A9512 for the Technetium. Please let me know what the correct way is to bill for this.

    Thank you
