What is the CPT code for repositioning the left ventricular lead?

Please advise.....edits state that repositioning of the left ventricular lead (33226) includes replacement of generator. C1882 Cardioverter-defibrillator, other than single or dual chamber (implantable) supply requires one of the following procedure codes 33224, 33240, or 33249.

What is the CPT code for replacing a defibrillator generator?

C1882 Cardioverter-defibrillator, other than single or dual chamber (implantable) supply requires one of the following procedure codes 33224, 33240, or 33249.

Rationale: Code R00. 1 includes sinoatrial bradycardia. In ICD-9-CM, this condition is classified in the Circulatory chapter, while in ICD-10-CM it is in Chapter 18.

What is the name of the electrodes that are placed into the atrium and or ventricle of the heart when a pacemaker is inserted?

The lead (or leads) is an insulated wire that is connected to the pulse generator on one end, with the other end placed inside one of the heart's chambers. The lead is almost always placed so that it runs through a large vein in the chest leading directly to the heart.

What changes were made to the ICD-10 PCS?

Most of the changes made for the 2017 version of ICD-10-PCS were within the Heart and Great Vessels body system . The device value Zooplastic Tissue (8) was added to the bypass table for the Heart and Great Vessels (021) . New qualifiers of Pulmonary vein right, left, and confluence were added, and an entire row was added for bypassing from the pulmonar y trunk (P), pulmonary artery right (Q), and pulmonary artery left (R) to the innominate artery (A), subclavian (B), and carotid (D). The last change to this table was the change of Thoracic Aorta to Thoracic Aorta, Descending (W) and the addition of Thoracic Aorta, Ascending/Arch (X) in order to better specify if a bypass was done on the ascending or descending aorta. These changes to the separation of the ascending and descending aorta were also applied to all root operations that contained the Thoracic Aorta. This affected 11 additional tables.

Which veins have a separate row for the Insertion of a Neurostimulator Lead?

The right and left innominate veins have a separate row to allow for the Insertion (05H) of a neurostimulator lead (M). Of course, if a device can be inserted, then it can also be removed or repositioned, so the same three body parts were added to tables 05P and 05W.

What is root operation control?

The definition of the root operation Control has been expanded to include acute bleeding, as well as the previously defined postoperative bleeding. The definition of Control now reads “Stopping, or attempting to stop, postprocedural or other acute bleeding.” The use of a more definitive root operation will still take precedence over the use of Control if that more definitive root operation is used to stop the bleeding. As has always been the case, a more definitive root operation would include Bypass, Detachment, Excision, Extraction, Reposition, Replacement, or Resection. New examples provided for Control include control of bleeding duodenal ulcer and control of retroperitoneal hemorrhage.

Which veins are separated into rows in the lower arteries?

The Lower Arteries body system now has the right and left common iliac arteries in separate rows. In the Upper Arteries body system, the azygos vein is separated onto its own row to allow for the Insertion (05H) of monitoring device (2) and neurostimulator lead (M). The right and left innominate veins have a separate row to allow for the Insertion (05H) of a neurostimulator lead (M). Of course, if a device can be inserted, then it can also be removed or repositioned, so the same three body parts were added to tables 05P and 05W.

Does Medicare require a 51 modifier?

Medicare does not need the 51 appended but some commercial insurances do require it. So take a look at the payers guidelines on the 51 modifier. I have never heard that a 51 modifier and 59 modifier could not be coded together. I have a couple commercial payers that require both.

Can you bill 33215 twice?

The MUEs on 33215 show it can be billed up to twice during the same session. It may have to be appealed but the documentation easily supports it being billed twice. 36215 and 75820 are not separately billable, all catheter placement and fluoro is included in all of the pacemaker/ICD codes. And since there wasn't a generator change the 33224 is correct.
