    Question Cpt code needed

    Does anyone know what the cpt code is for a "angioseal"? It is done to close the incision up in the femoral area after procedure.

    I get G0269, but my impression is that it's included in the procedues.

    Angioseal placement - otherwise known as "placement of occlusive device into either a venous or arterial access site" has a HCPCS code of G0269.

    Hello,

    The doctor performing the procedure cannot bill for the angioseal, it is included with the heart cath, interventional procedures etc. The hospital can bill for the supply but there isnt a professional fee for the angioseal.
