    What CPT code would you use to report a Greenfield filter placement... we're having trouble locating that code?

    Thanks, that's what we ended up using, so let's hope it's right. A couple of codes sounded good ~ I can't think of the other right now....

    Was a venacavagram preformed at the same time, if so you should also bill 36010. Then also a 75825-26 or 75940-26if you don't have a venacavagram if youare billing for S&I.

    Be careful charging a venogram with placement. Some physicians perform this with a sheath and you can't charge 36010. Report has to state catheter placed in IVC in order to charge for it.
