Billing Catheterization with Lower Extremity Revascularization

February 18, 2016

Question:
I still struggle with coding catheterizations with low extremity revascularizations. If I do an aortogram through the same femoral access, can I bill 36200 in addition to my iliac or femoral stent?

Answer:
No, that non-selective catheterization is bundled in the more selective catheterizations of the iliac or femoral artery.
