NCHIMA | CPT Challenges for Percutaneous Coronary Interventions

This presentation will cover angioplasty, stenting, atherectomy, and other percutaneous coronary interventions and give tips on proper CPT code assignment.

When should codes for interventions of acute myocardial infarction and total coronary occlusions be used? When should C codes be employed for stent insertions? This presentation will cover angioplasty, stenting, atherectomy, and other percutaneous coronary interventions and give tips on proper CPT code assignment.
