Question:
What happened to code 37202 for non-thrombolytic infusions?

Answer:
The code for transcatheter therapy, infusion other than thrombolysis; any type (37202) has been deleted, along with its paired radiological supervision and interpretation code for guidance (75896). Peripheral injection of a non-thrombolytic drug, verapamil for example, is considered inclusive to the primary procedure. A replacement code for 37202 was developed but it now applies only to intracranial infusions.
