Lesion Crossing Two Territories

Lesion Crossing Two Territories

April 1, 2021

Question:
Our vascular surgeon did a single intervention on a lesion that was at the juncture of the femoral/popliteal and tibial/peritoneal territories. Can we charge for two interventions?

Answer:
Lesions that extend across the margins of one vessel vascular territory into another, but can be treated with a single therapy are reported with a single intervention code.
