Thread: Pacemaker Clinic/ Tc Question

    Talking Pacemaker Clinic/ Tc Question

    AAPC: Back to School
    Our practice recently had a seminar concerning new 2009 codes for ICD/PACER checks done in our office. My question is: When checks are done in our office by our tech or in some cases company representatives(who do not bill on there own for this) is it a viable option to bill the global for checks. Some discussion as to whether we should only bill 26 portion if the company representative is on site that day. Can anyone give me some guidance on this?? We are a PA cardiology practice.

    Thanks a bunch "Curious George"

    Is the company representative performing these checks with the presence of other tech/physician?

    Yes. Our tech is present in the Clinic at this time. The rep is never allowed to be there on their own.
