    Default 76937 Ultrasound Guidance for vascular access

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone have any information on billing this code for the year 2011? I have found Q/A posted online for Dr. Z but it is from August 2010. In the article it gave documentation requirements and covered ICD dx for this code. Does anyone have a Dr. Z book for 2011 with this information???

    Any info would be of help!

    Default 76937 requirements for 2011...

    Documentation of US guidance for evaluation of potential access site, documentation of selected vessel patency, concurrent real-time US visualization of needle entry, and permanent recording and report.

    Thanks Mary!

    I feel like there are certain coverage restrictions for billing this.... Can someone look it up in their EnCoder???
