I know EVAR has bundled some components as of 2018. What’s now included in the new codes?
In addition to the components that were already Included in EVAR, the new 2018 EVAR main body codes now also include:
- Nonselective catheterization, unilateral or bilateral (36200).
- All intraprocedural imaging (eg, angiography, rotational CT) of the aorta and its branches prior to deployment of the endovascular device, fluoroscopic guidance and roadmapping used in the delivery of the endovascular components, and intraprocedural and completion angiography (eg, confirm position, detect endoleak, evaluate runoff) performed at the time of the endovascular infrarenal aorta and/or iliac repair.
