Thread: New codes

    AAPC: Back to School
    do you have any idea when the CPT assistant will be coming out? and if the correction is going to be made be is not in affect yet, would it still be okay to bill the generator exchange codes 33262-33264 wuth the insertion of the LV lead 33225 now? Did Terry Fletcher say we can bill those codes together now and our claims would pay?

    Default New codes

    I was the one who started the thread. My colleague and I decided we had to go ahead and start billing these procedures as we do a lot of them. We could find no other way to describe the scenario so we're billing the generator change-only codes with 33225 as we originally thought.
    We'll see what happens.

    The february 2012 Coding Edge has an article entitled Rethink Pacemaker and Defibrillator Coding in 2012 that addresses this somewhat. If you are at work and have internet access (and are an AAPC member) you can access the article on line under the continuing education tab
