CPT help: Central line placement

  1. Default CPT help: Central line placement
    Medical Coding Books
    Procedure reads: Placement of left subclavian Cordis catheter with insertion of triple-lumen catheter through the Cordis catheter.

    The doctor noted it as a "central line placement". Any clue on what the CPT might be? I was thinking 32553 but then I thought not because it's for radiation therapy and the pt did not have that.

    Help please

  2. Default
    use cpt 36556 plmt of non-tunneled cvp cath over age 5.

  3. Default Thank you!
    Thank you so much!
