Hi,

Thanks for your question.

The physician inserted the two stents during a common procedure on two major arteries, therefore code 92928 (Percutaneous transcatheter placement of intracoronary stent[s], with coronary angioplasty when performed; single major coronary artery or branch) is appropriate to use. Each individual major coronary artery must be identified separately and each artery would receive its own line item modified with the appropriate modifiers (LD, and LC). 

Hope this helps.

Thanks.
