  1. Default G0278
    Medical Coding Books
    When a left heart cath is performed with an iliac artery angiogram, does
    G0278 replace 75710 and 36246 or just 75710 for medicare billing??

  2. Red face

    It is for both 36246 and 75710.


  3. Default
    You would only use G0278 if the iliac angiogram is non selective. Only Medicare uses this code. If the iliac angiogram is selective then add modifier 59 to both 36246 and 75710-26.
