Thread: angio/atherectomy same vessel

  1. #1

    Default angio/atherectomy same vessel

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can the physician bill an atherectomy and angioplasty on the same vessel. For example, physician performs atherectomy and the result is not as good as expected and physician also does angioplasty of same area with good technical results, can we bill both procedures.

    Thank you in advance for any help on this.
