For the Week of November 23, 2020
An interventional cardiologist performs a percutaneous left heart catheterization, then selective injections of the left ventricle and coronary arteries for diagnostic purposes followed by mechanical thrombectomy of the LAD artery with subsequent drug-eluting stent placement in the LAD. Do you have tips for this?
What are the CMS updates regarding testing payment for high throughput COVID-19 testing?
In a follow-up to last week’s question do any exceptions exist for billing complex drugs for chemotherapy administration?
Are other non-radioactive drugs covered within code 78451?
Are there charges generated for 94760?
How would you report the Z3A.- code in the setting of multiple gestations where different gestational ages are given to different fetuses? We had an OB ultrasound case today with twins and dates for fetus A being 8w3d (Z3A.08) and fetus B being 9w4d (Z3A.09). Would you code to the youngest date (Z3A.08), the oldest date (Z3A.09), or are we able to code both (Z3A.08, Z3A.09)?
