    Default Intravascular Ultrasound - Non Coronary 37250/37251

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi coders,

    I have a physician who does a lot of these and usually in multiple vessels on different sides. I know CPT says you can bill per vessel but I was wondering are there any tips, suggestions out there?

    Right side: IVUS of
    1 right ext iliac
    2 right common iliac
    3 right sfa

    Left side: IVUS of
    1 left common
    2 left external
    3 left sfa

    Would you feel comfortable billing for all of those? I don't know why I feel uneasy about it but I do.

    Thanks for any input or advice
