Thread: Repositioning 33215 of 2 electrodes

    Default Repositioning 33215 of 2 electrodes

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have both an RA and RV lead which dislodged due to the patient swimming
    3 weeks after the device was planted and they both were repositioned.
    Since the code refers to one or the other, do I use Mod 51 or just bill 2X?
    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    I have written down in my CPT book next to 33215 "if both leads repositioned bill x2".

    Hope this helps,
