    Default temp pacemaker and pacemaker insertion same day

    AAPC: Back to School
    A temp pacemaker was inserted because sales rep was not present at that time but will be present later on same day. Can both temp and pacemaker be billed? Different sessions but same day. Procedure takes place in cath lab.

    yes you can bill a temp pacemaker same day as a permanent pacemaker, 33210-59. Make sure your documentation supports the need to place a temporary pacemaker.
