    Question Nips Can someone help
    Medical Coding Books
    A re there 2 different codes depending on the device?
    Looking in the Heart Rhythm Society book I have 93724 and 93642 are both called NIPS:

  2. #2
    93724 (pcr) Nips this is done with induction of Arrhythmia.
    (must be performed in a specially equipped suite) Op/In Hospital setting.

    93731-93735 is interrogation only
    (Can be done in the office because no arrhythimia is induced.)

    93642 is nips for defibrillator with induction of Arrhythmia

    hope this helps
