Thread: Hickman catheter

  1. #1

    Default Hickman catheter

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am still very new to anesthesia so I wanted to get a second opinion in my thinking on this....
    There is an 87 y.o. pt who was administered sedation for the removal of a Hickman catheter, so the CPT would be 36589, but there is no anesthesia crosswalk code, so I can't bill for this....correct???

    Thanks for any help!

    Default Hickman catheter

    CPT code 36589 does have a crosswalk to 00400.
