Four new vascular embolization codes debuted in January, and the latest CPT® Assistant has a must-read article for anyone who performs these services. You'll benefit from five separate examples that will help you identify and count surgical fields. The article also reveals at-a-glance lists of which services are included and which services you may report separately. A bonus Q&A section addresses confusing scenarios, such as how to code when there are multiple indications for embolization or when stent placement is performed at the same session.
