    Question 92980 +
    Medical Coding Books
    Our physician performed a PTCA Stent to RCA and a PTCA to LAD. Would I bill this as:
    1. 92980-RC, 92982-LD
    2. 92980-RC, 92984-LD?

    Thanks.

    I was under the impression that when the doctor does both PTCA and Stent we can only bill for the stent so it would be 92980-RC, are you saying they will pay for both if the PTCA is a different vessel?

    Yes. RC and LD are coded separately.
