Cardiology Compliance Question of the Week

Question:

What code do I use in place of 0337T?

Answer:

As code 0337T has been deleted, if endothelial function assessments (unilateral or bilateral) are performed using peripheral vascular response to reactive, noninvasive (i.e., brachial artery ultrasound, peripheral artery tonometry) assign unlisted procedure code (UPC) 93998 to describe this service.
