Staged Cardiac Intervention

  1. Default Staged Cardiac Intervention
    Exam Training Packages
    Hi,
    Patient had 92980-RC,93510-26,93545,9355626-59,
    93543,9355526-59
    at this time a complex bifurcation stenosis in the LAD was noted. He returned for staged interventions 1 month later, stents were placed in the LD & LC.
    The doc also performed a full angio 93510-26,93545,93543,93556-26 and 935552-26. There were no new symptoms or changes from the 1st procedure.

    Am I right in thinking I still cannot bill the second angio? Just the stent placements, right?

    Thanks

    Correct, you can only bill for the intervention.
