    As I understand, it is NOT billable.

    That is because, it is understood that when you open or do an invasive procedure, you have to close it. Therefore, it is inclusive to the procedure and not separately billable

    The g-code is a billable code. It's used for angioseal, Perclose, Starclose, ect. The code states - Placement of an occlusive device into either an arterial or venous access site. It is not an open surgical repair.
