    Default Cardiac Cath Codes

    AAPC: Back to School
    Before i confuse myself anymore.. I wanted to make sure i had this correct.. Our Docs do the heart caths at the hospital. Up until this year i would bill out for ex: a L Hrt Cath, LV, w/o root as 93510-26, 93543, 93545, 93556-26 and 93555-26. This year it is just a 93458, but do i still use the -26.. The more i read the code the more confused I have gotten. Just wanted to see how everyone else was doing it. Thanks!!

    Yes, ma'am...you would still need to add modifier -26 for the professional component.
