Cardiology Question for the Week of May 3, 2021

Cardiology Compliance Question of the Week


Do you have any advice for reporting 75630 in regards to documentation?


Determine if documentation supports the entire abdominal aorta. Look for a mention in the report of renal arteries or celiac axis/trunk. Also, look for documentation supporting imaging of both lower extremities through at least femoral arteries. If no mention is made of upper/proximal abdominal aorta (i.e., are renal arteries defined?) this is not 75630 but either 75710 or 7571.
