Thread: Unsuccessful/failed coronary intervention

  1. #1

    Default Unsuccessful/failed coronary intervention

    Promo: Code Books
    I am not sure how to bill for an unsuccessful/failed coronary intervention. I am planning to bill for the angiography and interp, but are there any other codes I can bill for?

    Thanks,
    Amy, CPC

    Default

    Unsuccessful or discontinued?

    If Discontinued see modifier -53 (physician) or -73 / -74 (hospital), in addition to ICD-9 V64.__ code.
