Thread: FFR 73571&72 in the LMCA and CIR

    Default FFR 73571&72 in the LMCA and CIR

    AAPC: Back to School
    With the LMain not recognized as a coronary artery when treating the Circumflex in my example, can you bill the the FFR in both the LM and CIR?
    I know if stenting or ballooning you would not. I don't know if I should bill the FFR on 1 time or give credit since done in both. Does anyone know?

    Default 93571- 93572

    You would only report in the one vessel. LC would be the one.

    Thanks! I thought maybe it would different for the FFR and that could be billed. My CSI book does not reference this. Do you have a valuable resource that you would recommend?
