Thread: Category 3 Codes (for shunt)

    Question Category 3 Codes (for shunt)

    AAPC: Back to School
    I work for an ASC that recently did an Express Shunt. The category three code is 0192T. Is that the actual procedure code, or is that for the shunt itself? Are they seperately billable? I'm not sure what to expect for reimbursement. Thank you!
