Pre and post device programming and retrograde Aortic

Arshia Posted Thu 16th of June, 2011 19:19:46 PM

Hello what is the appropiate code to use for Pre and Post device programming and also Retrograde Aortic?

He has done 93620and 3D mapping and 93623 and then pre-device programming and post-device programming and then 71090 and retrograde Aortic?!

cpt 71090 must be associated with appropriate device implant code (33206, 33207, 33208)
Programming device evaluation code is based on the type of implant device and is in the range (93279-93285) for the CPT 93620 and 93623.
Any follow-up study to be coded as 93624.
