The patient presents for replacement of his DDD-ICD generator.
The existing RV defibrillator lead is not functioning well, so it is capped.
A new RV defibrillator lead is inserted.
The old DDD-ICD pulse generator is removed and a new DDD-ICD generator is inserted, and connected to the new RV lead and existing RA lead.
Defibrillation threshold not done.
CPT: 33249, 33241
Is the billing correct?
Can you combine 33249 and 33241?
