stent placement

    Smile stent placement

    Hello,

    Need some help here, my cardiologist placed (2) stents on the same artery,
    Do I bill 92980 x 2, or do I just bill code 92980 one time because it was in the same artery.

    Confused, please help

    Thank you

    Linda,

  2. Default 92980
    I have read over code 92980 and in your situation it appears that you would only report 92980 once. If you had additional stents in a different vessel then you would report 92981 in addition to 92980.

    I hope this helps.
