Thread: 92973 Per Trans Coronary Thrombectomy

    Default 92973 Per Trans Coronary Thrombectomy

    AAPC: Back to School
    Was wondering if anyone has run into this problem, and what to do?

    Dr did

    and then he did a 92973 but it says you have to bill for the primary procedure
    (92980,92982) He didnt do that procedure, so I can't bill for the thrombectomy then?

    Please help

    You are correct; 92973 is an add-on code that can be billed with 92980 or 92982 only. If 92980 or 92982 was not performed the physician cannot bill 92973.
