    Question Pacemaker/ICD interrogation

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi all,

    Can anyone confirm that device interrogation during a postop visit is a billable code? I'm looking to bill 93288 or 93289....is this allowed? Thanks!

    Yes, it is. Pacemaker/device checks are NOT included in the global period. You may bill for them.
