Cardiology Compliance Question of the Week


If the hospital receives outside images (consult) of the CTA and derives the FFR from that CTA, can the hospital bill for the FFR service?


Yes, you can bill 0502T and 0503T. Neither of these codes include performing the original CTA. This FFR computation is done on previously obtained CTA.
