    AAPC: Back to School
    I know if my dictation for a pacemaker or ICD mentions fluoroscopy I can use 71090-26,

    what about heart cath, dictation says "with some difficulty getting the Swan-Ganz to the right pulmonary artery fluoroscopically"

    already included in 93503 or seperate 7 code or don't code ?

    Thanks for any help !

    76000-26 (up to 1 hour physician time). According to CMS CCI edits it is not included in 93503. It seems to be included in every other cath placement code though.
