Radiology CPT Code Changes Proposed for 2018

The arterial stent codes apply to any artery that does not have an anatomy-specific CPT code (carotid, iliac and infrainguinal, intracranial, coronary, and vertebral arteries have specific stent placement codes). Any ballooning performed to treat the stented vessel (before, during, or after stent placement) is included in the work of the stent codes and is not separately reported. Selective catheterization of the vessel(s) is not included in the work described by the stent codes and is separately reported. In addition, ultrasound guidance for vessel puncture and intravascular ultrasound are not included in the work of these codes.

New codes were developed that bundle the surgical and radiologic portions of stent procedures into a single code. There are two new pairs of codes, one for arterial stents and one for venous stents. These codes are reported per vessel treated rather than per stent placed. For dialysis access treatment coding purposes, the definition of “vessel” is different than the anatomical definition and should be reviewed in the CPT manual to ensure correct reporting. Each pair of stent codes has a parent code used to report the first vessel treated, with an add-on code for reporting additional stented vessels during the same procedure.

The following codes apply for this PQRS measure: CPT Codes: Code ..

These codes do not include the work of selective catheterization of the vessel(s) embolized, diagnostic angiography if performed, ultrasound guidance for vessel access, or the work of handling and dosing chemotherapy or radiotherapy. Those services may be separately reported when performed. The existing codes 37204 (previous embolization code) and 37210 (specific code for uterine fibroid embolization) were deleted from CPT and can no longer be used. The radiologic supervision and interpretation codes 75894 (embolization) and 75898 (follow-up angiography during embolization) were not deleted but should not be reported with the new embolization codes because those portions of work are included in the new bundled embolization codes.

If your facility performs endovascular repair of aortic aneurysms, prepare for new and revised CPT codes in 2006. Endovascular repair is the use of an endoprosthesis to seal off abnormal sections of the aorta. Endovascular repair of the abdominal aorta has had its own Category I codes for several years, but repair of the thoracic aorta has had only Category III codes (0033T-0040T). On January 1, however, new Category I codes for the thoracic aorta procedures took effect.
