Cardiac Catheter Placement coding

  1. Question Cardiac Catheter Placement coding
    Exam Training Packages
    Hi everyone, I been curious about this: When you code for Cardiac Catheterization Placement coding, do they require a -TC or -26 modifier?

    I'd really appreciate the help

    I post the charges for the doctors doing the procedure. You have to add mod 26 to the cath (93508-93533) and imaging codes (93555, 93556), if you do a stent also during the cath, then the imaging codes would also get mod 59 as well. Hope that helps
