Question:

Can catheterization be reported separately with the new embolization codes?

Answer:

Yes, the new embolization codes (37241-37244) revised in 2014 exclude catheterization codes. These may be separately billed. However, the new codes do bundle the guidance and follow-up radiologic supervision codes (previously 75894/75898), but do not include diagnostic angiography when appropriately performed.
