    Pt comes for F/U Bi ventricular ICD working well with no significant arrhythmias. I'm not finding a code for this, Please help me find a code?

    I'm not all that familiar w/cardiac coding, but I'm assuming the Bi Ventricle ICD is some sort of device. You would code for the condition in which the device was needed for. Perhaps the arrhythmias? Then look to your V codes. There should be something in there in regards to patient having a device, or if it's status post surgery etc. Sorry I don't have real definite answers, but hopefully this helps give you a starting point.

    You could try V67.09 (F/U after other surgery) and V45.02 (AICD in situ)
