Need more details (like patient agae, Type of catheter, insertation - central vs peripheral etc) to assist you in a better manner.
You can look for following code (code sereis) for the same.
36555/36556 - if inserted centrally (central venous system)
36570-36571 - if perfoemed on inserted periferally
Hope this can help
