Angioplasty and stent placement same day, different sessions

    Default Angioplasty and stent placement same day, different sessions
    Medical Coding Books
    Ok, not sure about this. Pt was getting PTA and was on the last day (37214). The Dr. did a SFA angioplasty in the morning, and then in the afternoon decided that she needed further intervention so took her back in and put a popliteal stent in. Is it ok to code both 37226 and 37224 since they were done in separate sessions?

    If this is a Medicare pt., try using the New XE modifier for all codes for the second Sx. The new modifiers are not requiered until 1/1/15 but they can be used now. For Com. ins., I would just add a 59 on 37224.
