Renal Stent Placement

Oscar Posted Thu 18th of June, 2015 04:49:13 AM

Please answer the following coding question:

My doctor has placed stents in Right & Left main renal arteries ostium area percutaneously. Should I report 37236 with 50 or RT/LT Modifier or report 37236 & 37237? Please answer.

Report CPT code 37236 with 50 modifier for percutaneous stent placement in bilateral renal arteries.

CPT code 37237 is for each additional artery and therefore, cannot be used.
