I just want to ask if the physician places a left sided subdural to peritoneal shunt by using a Strata NSC valve programmable set at 0.7; how would this be coded?

Use code 62192, Creation of shunt; subarachnoid/subdural-peritoneal, -pleural, other terminus.

Would you code a separate code for the programming of the pump?

There is no separate code for programming.
