    Question 93526 for Medicare

    Is anyone else having difficulty getting paid for 93526-26 for Medicare? It does not seem to relate to medical necessity/DX codes. What am I missing?
    Thanks!

    Medicare issued a new LCD for heart caths and interventional procedures (Stent, angioplasty) For the heart cath check out LCD L28244, depending on your carrier it may be a different LCD number.

    Good luck!
