    Question Programming vs Interrogation
    Exam Training Packages
    A staff member recently attended a conference at which he was told that if he made any adjustment during an interrogation, whether it was permanent or not, he should code for programming and not interrogation. Is this correct?

    Yes that is true. Look at The Heart and rythm society FAQS doc at http://www.hrsonline.org/Policy/Codi...inar_nov13.pdf or just go to the HRS site they are a great source of reimbursement information for devices.

    Thanks - I finally came to the conclusion that any change counted as programming, but I really appreciate your feedback!!
