Thread: post procedure status code for IVC filter

  1. #1

    Default post procedure status code for IVC filter

    Is there a post procedural V code for IVC filter similar to the V45.01 pacemaker V45.51 contraceptive device or V45.85 insulin pump status? I am coding a preventative exam on a patient who had one placed 5 years ago
