    Question av optimization

    AAPC: Back to School
    My cardiologist has begun doing Atrioventricular optimization for pacemakers.
    It seems to be an interrogation with or without reprogramming, but he's also
    measuring the mitral and ventricular outflow tract velocity time integrals under
    doppler ultrasound. How is the doppler coded?

    Cool Suzanne

    Hey, what we do @ our ofice is use 93308 & 93325 along with a reprogram. My doc told me it has to be reprogrammed afterwards. Another cardio office adds 93312, only if you have the equipment

    Default AV ops

    When an AV op is performed in our office we bill 4 codes:
    Limited echo-93308
    Limited doppler -93321
    Color flow- 93325
    along with the device reprogramming code.

    Could you use the Peri Procedural code if it was an ICD?
