Thread: Carotid Doppler

  1. #1

    Default Carotid Doppler

    AAPC: Back to School
    One of our mds will be reading the carotid doppler studies that we send our pt for. My question is what would we code just for the professional component? I looked at 37215-26 but the ins companies wont allow it. Any help is really appreciated. Thanks everyone.

    Confused. 37215 is a transcatheter stent placement, not a doppler.
