    ok well i wish i could give you a straight forward answer but ... i cant

    The good news is all your codes are correct including your stent codes
    But i would be careful when billing the angioplasty and stenting together you want to make sure that it is medically necessary to bill both because you almost have to do a angioplasty to place a stent. so you should see something in your documentation that said that " we tried to do the angioplasty we got sum-optimal results so we placed a stent" and then you absolutly can bill them togeather according to CCI but just be carful. if not just the stent codes

    Second thing: you said the Doctor did a selective angiogram. if it was a full and complete exam then you possibley can bill for a angio code as well ( 75722 one renal, 75724 two renal SELECTIVE)

    I hope this helps
