For the Week of June 18, 2018
Can we charge for two kissing balloons when one is for a lesion and one is for protection of a stent but no lesion? The internal iliac had a lesion, and the external iliac had a stent that needed protection. Would the codes be 37220 and 37222?
Our facility has assigned code 94150 (vital capacity, total) to line items described as “peak ﬂow.” Is this appropriate under Medicare?
