Thread: Cadiac Caths and EP studies

    Default Cadiac Caths and EP studies

    AAPC: Back to School
    I'm new to pediatric cardiology and am stressing out!! I'm not sure how to code the cardiac caths and EP studies!?!?! I know most of the children have congential issues but I'm just not sure of modifiers and such. As for the EP studies...I'm totally lost. I'd like to say there is someone on the office that could help but there's not. Could someone please give me some type of background on cardiac caths and modifiers and whatever you know in regards to EP studies?? Oh and it's all inpatient hospital setting...

    If it is critical care codes, as per the time, only the critical care code isgiven.
    If it is Hospital Inpatient coding, may be
    MS-DRG- 222, 223, 224, 225
    Kindly check- 37.20 -Noninvasive programmed electrical stimulation
    bedside check – 89.45 – 89.49

    Coding Strategies has a great cardiology book. It's about $300 but worth every penny.

    I've coded for peds cardiology for a while, and if you have a specific question, I'd be happy to help.
