Question:
If a thrombolysis infusion catheter is placed, can the catheterization (for example 36247) be billed in addition to the thrombolysis (37211)?

Answer:
Yes, the catheterization, (36245-36247) may be separately reported in addition to the thrombolysis code (37211).  Remember, if a diagnostic angiogram is also performed, this may also be separately reported.
