    Default Looking for evlt help

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am billing for a vascular surgeon. His facility is AAAA certified. He has asked me if he can bill for the evlt(endovenous laser treatment) disposable kit that he pays for. I have been uable to find a code for this and believe that it is inclusive to the cpt 36478 which is why there is no code... Any help or input would be greatly appreciated.

    Default Evlt help

    you are right..........the laser and the kits are all included in the reimbursement for the evlt same as the scalpel,vicryl, etc are included in a wound repair. they are incidental and integral to the procedure. sorry i couldn't offer a better answer!!
