    Hi there--

    Wondering if anyone has coded a NIPS (Noninvasive programmed electrical stimulation) procedure before? I see that on the ICD-9 side it has it's own procedure code 37.20, but I am unsure of what CPT code to use for this procedure. My encoder lands on 93642, is this correct?

    The correct code for NIPS is 93724.

    Thanks very much, I have just had this gut feeling that 93641/93642 weren't the best capture. We are doing these much more now so I am relieved to have a different code to work with. Thanks again!

    I think it depends on what scenario for which you are coding "NIPS".
    My software also takes me to 93642 as well as 93618 (and 93724)
