Thread: Angio Seal, Star Closure

    Default Angio Seal, Star Closure

    Promo: Code Books
    I thought that I could bill G0269 (I know Medicare won't pat it, but other providers will) for Star closure or angio-seal during a LHCath or L+R HCath, the Doctor IS documenting it, but I am being told by others that I cannot bill this because my Doc is doing the procedure at the hospital (???)

    I asked the same question when I first started coding heart caths. I was told that this is a facility charge and there is no charge for the physician.
