    AAPC: Back to School
    We have a doctor that is going to drive me to drink... too late!

    He wants to do a lumbar catheter placement, with fluoroscopy, for drainage that is continuous, and do daily visits.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but 62272 is a one shot thing. Is there a code for continuous drainage?

    Is there any possibility he may be performing 63741 to drain the CSF?

    I was looking at possibly 22010 or 22015

    Sorry I guess 22012 or 22015 are not for drainage of CSF.
