    Question Cpt 76937

    AAPC: Back to School
    If a CRNA places a CVP line and uses U/S Guidance. Can the CPT 76937 be billed under the CRNA to Medicare?

    I have seen some Medicare carriers deny the ultrasound guidance when billed by CRNAs stating that they are not allowed to perform this procedure. I would make sure that this is a procedure that they are allowed to perform under State Law and if it denies you can use this in your appeal.
