    Default Fractional Flow Wire

    Is anyone familiar with the new CPT code 00.59 for fractional flow wire? Does this replace the currant code of 93571?

    molly - 00.59 is a CPT code?

    ohhhh...I bet you mean it's a new ICD-9-CM procedure code - (not CPT).... ICD-9 dx procedure codes do not "take the place" of CPT codes. You'd still be using your CPT code if the procedure was done.

    and, if 00.59 is a new ICD-9 volume 3 procedure code - you wouldn't use it until Oct 1st
