Cardiology

For the Week of March 20, 2017

Can we bill the following injection codes for drug administration during a cardiac catheterization procedure?
96373      Therapeutic, prophylactic, or diagnostic injection (specify substance or drug); intra-arterial
96374      Intravenous push, single or initial substance/drug

Current correct coding initiative (CCI) edits indicate that these codes are a component of the cardiac catheterization and coronary interventional codes and, therefore, should not be billed separately.
