You would be correct not to bill the LHC on day two because it was staged. I would say that if the doctor was able to get a balloon to the lesion but unable to deploy then you could bill the balloon code with a modifier for discontinued procedure. However, if he was not able to get the balloon to the vessel and only got that far with a wire/sheath, then I would not bill for the balloon. These types of cases you should check your employer's policy and use best judgement.
