    Could someone help me out with a coding question on intrcoronary injection of nitroglycerin during cath procedure. Should i be able to bill 96373 intra-artrial injection with 59 modifier??? Please help!!!

    Unfortunately, the performing physician cannot bill for the injection of Nitroglycerin during a cath procedure or stent placement; it is included with both of these procedures. The hospital will bill for the nitroglycerin.

    Hope this has helped,

    Thanks for the feed back. Thought it would be too good to be true. Needed to check again though. Have a good day
