Description

The best way to describe documentation requirements and CPT® code reporting for pacemakers and defibrillators is “it’s complicated.” This presentation will attempt to simplify CPT® coding for these complex procedures by presenting the various types of pacemaker and defibrillator technologies along with coding guidelines for the placement, replacement, revision, and removal of procedural components. As an added bonus, we will also address proper reporting of cardiac device credits, use of the KX and SC modifiers, and updated Medicare coverage criteria.
