76937

Long Posted Tue 12th of November, 2019 14:30:59 PM
The doctor has performed an Afib ablation (by PVI), and ultrasound has been used for catheter guidance. Can we report 76937 together with 93656 in this case?

Hi Long,

 

Yes, you can report CPT code 76937 with CPT code 93656. As per NCCI, there are no bundling issues between these two codes. Hence can be reported together.

 

Note:  If the radiologist uses ultrasound guidance when accessing a vessel for a catheter placement but doesn't record the images, do not report 76937 because the descriptor tells this code requires permanent recording.

 

Thanks!

One more thing. I know we cannot report 76937 together with 33274/33275 (Leadless PM). Can you confirm if it is ok to report 76937 together with other implantable EP device procedure, e.g., 33249.

Hi Long,

 

Yes, you can report CPT code 76937 with EP device procedures like 33249.

 

As per AMA notes, do not report 76937 in conjunction with 33274, 33275, 36568, 36569, 36572, 36573, 36584, 37191, 37192, 37193, 37760, 37761 and 76942

 

Do not report 76937 in conjunction with 0505T for ultrasound guidance for vascular access.

 

Hope, provided information would be helpful.

 

Thanks!
