Thread: Programming of a pacemaker

  1. #1

    Default Programming of a pacemaker

    AAPC: Back to School
    Good morning. When billing the insertion of a pacemaker system can you also bill the programming (93279 or 93280) or is this considered a part of the insertion?

    Thank you,
    Brittany, CPC-A

    I did find out that this service is bundled on the inital implant!

    Thank you!
