    AAPC: Back to School
    I have to bill for facility or ASC with this scenario...

    The patient has bleeding fro the splenic flexure and underwent transcatheter coil embolization of a third order branch middle colic artery and suerior mesenteric angiogram...

    This is ALL I'v got!~ any suggestions would be appreciated.. I typically only code surgery.

    74185 for the angiogram?

    (CPT - 37204 - Transcatheter embolization, percutaneous, non-head)
    Usually followed by,
    CPT - 75894 - radiological S&I;
    CPT - 75898 - Angiography through existing catheter for follow up study for transcatheter therapy, embolization.

    May be 75898 followed by 75894 with 51 modifier can help.
