Sharpen Your Wireless PA Pressure Sensor Coding Skills With June CPT® Assistant

Patients with wireless pulmonary artery (PA) pressure sensors typically undergo weekly monitoring for the rest of their lives. That means your coding needs to be accurate or errors will add up fast. The June 2019 AMA CPT® Assistant takes you through the codes and guidelines for implantation and monitoring. You get clinical examples and procedure descriptions, too, to give you a clearer picture of how the AMA intends you to use these codes.

This issue also gives you official guidance on gene therapy, EHR consultations, and more. Look for these keywords and codes from CPT® Assistant, vol. 29, issue 6, on TCI SuperCoder’s Code Connect:
