    Hello!

    W/O looking at the report I cannot give you the exact codes; however, I can assist you with the range of codes to refer too.

    33249 - dual chamber ICD
    93640-93641 - ICD testing during implant
    71090-26 - if fluorscopy guidance is mentioned in the report for lead placement.

    93642-26 DFT testing following implant

    Cannot bill for venography as it is included with the lead placement if report reads "mapped out" or "used as access" then you cannot bill. There must be a separate medical condition to bill the venography separately.

    I hope this helps you.
