IC Nitro bundled with Cath?

  1. Default IC Nitro bundled with Cath?
    Exam Training Packages
    Need some clarification. Is Intracoronary Nitro (37202) still bundled with a cardiac cath? I always thought that it was, but have never seen anything documented on this. I also have an interventionalist who used IC Nitro without doing a cath/stents. (another cardiologist did the cath). Is it then payable alone? Appreciate any thoughts/comments.

    It is bundled with the cath, with or without stents

    Thanks. Thats what I thought. I was told it was payable with the 59 modifier, but was certain that was unbundling. Just wanted to be sure the rules hadn't changed and I wasn't missing somthing that could be reimbursed.
