For the Week of September 18, 2017
Can we assign the coronary mechanical thrombectomy code (92973) for an aspiration thrombectomy catheter?
How can I check on the test complexity for a specific test system?
What code and modifier should be used to report an injection of the biosimilar drug infliximab?
Is there a CPT® code to use when performing a chest and abdominal single-view on an infant located in the neonatal ICU? We now use 71010 (radiologic examination, chest; single view, front) and just include a reading of the abdomen within the chest report. Is this correct, or would it be appropriate to do the same view as described and send the same view to two separate orders (chest 71010 and abdomen 74000)?
Can code 94726 be reported with code 94727?
