    In the process of updating our cath billing sheet and can use a second set of eyes! thanks!

    93452-LHC
    93452-LHC/LV
    93453- RHC/LHC only
    93531- RHC w/ retrograde LHC for congenital abnormalities
    93458-LHC/Cors only
    93459-LHC/Crs/IMA and/or grafts
    93458-LHc/Cors/LV
    93459-LHC/Cors/Lv/IMA and/or grafts
    93454-Cors only
    93455-Cors/IMA and/or grafts
    93505-Rv biopsy
    93530-RHC no dye for congenital abnormalities
    93451-RHC no dye
    93503-Swan
    93530/93463-RHC no dye w/ nitric oxide for congenital abnormalities
    93451/93463-RHC no dye w/ nitric oxide
    93530/93463/93566-RHC w/dye w/ nitric oxide for congenital abnormalities
    93451/93463 RHC w/ dye w/ nitric oxide
    93530/93566-RHC w/dye for congenital abnormalities
    93451/93566-RHC w/ dye
    93533-R&L transeptal w/ opening
    93453/93462-R&L transeptal w/o opening

    We are going back and forth on these:
    93460-R&L/Cors w/ congenital abnormalities
    93460-R&L Cors
    93460R&L/Cors/Lv w/ congenital abnormalities
    93460-R&L/Cors/LV
    How do you bill the injection codes forthe CORS for the congenital abnormalities


    thank you for any input, my eyes are starting to play tricks on me, Ive been doing this for weeks now!

    Below is from Dr. Z's news letter
    93460 Catheter placement in coronary artery(s) for coronary angiography, including intraprocedural injection(s) for coronary angiography, imaging supervision and interpretation; with right and left heart catheterization including intraprocedural injection(s) for left ventriculography, when performed



    Code 93460 describes a routine right and left heart catheterization previously reported with codes 93526, 93543, 93545, 93555, and 93556.

    I do not think 93460 is for congenital abnornalities.

    HTH,

    Jim is right! 93460 is Right & LHC w/wo LV

    Default
    I think a routine R&L Heart cath w/ or w/o LV is 93463 for non congenital abnormalities
    93531 is a R&L heart Cath for congenital abnormalities

    93460 is a R&L Heart cath w/ or w/o LV w/ a CORS ( coronary angiography)- this code doesnt state whether it is is congenital or non congenital.

    If that is not correct, how do you code for a CORS??
