Cardiology Compliance Question of the Week


Can we separately report selective vascular catheterization codes when performed with an EP study?


Do not separately report cardiac catheterization or selective vascular catheterization CPT® codes when performed with an EP study. A cardiac catheterization CPT code is separately reportable if it is a medically reasonable, necessary, and distinct service performed at the same or different patient encounter.
