    Smile Right Heart Cath vs. Selective Pulmonary Artery Codes

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone know when billing pediatric cardiology codes such as a congenital heart cath code 93531. Is it allowable to bill the nonselective and selective pulmonary artery codes 36013-36015 ? or venous codes nonselective-selective 36010-36012 as well S&I codes? I just started working in a pediatric cardiology office. I have only ever billed Adult Cardiology. Thanks for any help or references you can advise.
