Do you have any guidance on code 33367?


This is an add on code. When cardiopulmonary bypass support is utilized during the aortic valve replacement, the support is coded separately with the corresponding add-on codes like 33367, 33368, or 33369 as appropriate.

33367 Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR/TAVI) with prosthetic valve; cardiopulmonary bypass support with percutaneous peripheral arterial and venous cannulation (e.g., femoral vessels) (List separately in addition to code for primary procedure)
