Thread: Angio Closure Device

    Default Angio Closure Device

    AAPC: Back to School

    I just a have question in regards to the Angio-Seal Closure Device that is done after preforming a Cath or Stent.

    I know that at this time there is no payment for this and there is a code you can use for reporting purpose only but I was wondering if there has been any talk about making this a payable service. We have a new physician who does these closure devices on a regular basis

    He dictates: The right femeral artery is angiographically normal. Sheath is placed appropriately above bifurcation and angio-seal device was successfuly deployed.

    I was just wondering how other office are handling these.

    we currently only bill for the supply that is used for the closure until we hear anything further on payment for this service.
