Successful intervention of the significant lesion with balloon expandable stent.

This is a Medicare patient, so I want to have the accurate answer.

As per the documentation provided, appropriate CPT codes would be 37236 and 36225. Do not append modifier-59 to procedure code 36225 as there is no CCI Edit between both the codes.
