    Default Billing 93501 with 93505

    AAPC: Back to School
    I need to know the rules for billing RT Heart Catheterization with Endomyocardial biopsy.

    According to CPT assistant April 2000,

    When endomyocardial biopsy is performed in conjunction with a diagnostic cardiac cath then code 93505 should be reported in addition to the component cardiac cath codes.

    But if the physician performs the cardiac cath only as a means of obtaining the endomyo cardial biopsy, and does not perform a separate diagnostic heart catheterization, then only the endomyo-cardial biopsy would be reported.
