    Default Pacemaker - I'm new to ANesthesia coding

    AAPC: Back to School
    I'm new to ANesthesia coding and had a question. What ASA code do you use for Pacemaker battery change? Is it 00400?

    Your CPT codes would be 33212 or 33213 for insertion of new and 33233 for removal of old. Usually these are located on the anterior chest/subclavicular area which would be ASA code 00400 (anesthesia anterior trunk).
