Shiley Catheter - doesnt know code

  1. Default Shiley Catheter - doesnt know code
    Medical Coding Books
    Morning all - I have an provider placing a Shiley Catheter - - he doesnt know code and I'm not finding that particular wording in my resources - - can anyone tell me what code to use?

  2. Default
    I was taught to use 36140 for Shiley. It's not worded in the CPT book. I believe it's also referred to as Shiley-udall or femoral udall catheter. I hope this helps.
