Mechanical Thrombectomy - venous

Lance Posted Wed 19th of November, 2014 12:34:26 PM

Hello,

I need to know the proper CPT codes and C-Codes for a mechanical thrombectomy of the peripheral vasculature. This would include coding for mechanical thrombectomy of Deep Vein Thrombosis, the IVC, Portal veins and central veins.

Also, I need to know the facility and physician payment for these codes.

Thanks,
Lance
