There isn't really a code for removal because the patient doesn't need it anymore. The V53.31 code covers a multitude of scenarios including fitting,adjustment( interrogation and reprogramming), end of battery life etc. I guess it would cover removal because the device is no longer needed...I've never encountered that Dx before, but I don't think there is anything else you can use. It's not like the patient has bacterial endocarditis and needs to have any hardware removed ( which I encountered recently)
It will get paid with V53.31
