Here is what I got, but I got it from PI so I would think they have it. After all they do billing daily.jaynekae wrote:Hello, I have been evaluated for ccsvi and I am a canidate. But, I have Medicare and my Doctor won't proceed with my venolplasty until finds the right cpt and dc-9 codes Does anyone know the right codes so that Dr. at Pacific Interventionalist can be correctly reinbursed? Thank you, Jay
Caveat: If you are going to be treated at PI, please have good follow up care lined up. I have had terrible, terrible luck with them.

Good point, newveins.newveins wrote:Are you joking or a troll? Obviously the doctors provide the codes not the patient, we are not physicians and it sounds like you are not a patient, perhaps you work for a physician or an insurance company. No physician would ask for procedure codes before seeing a patient.
Jaykene, what dr. are you seeing? Please let us know why you needed this info. If not, please stop posting on a seit that is dedicated to the exchange of real, trustworthy information.
How RUDE you all are. PI's office staff gave me that as an excuse as to why they were not able to Bill Medicare....because they were not sure as to the correct billable codes to use. I hardly think that I'm a "troll" for seeking codes that others used....GET A LIFE. And Thank you to the lovely person who gave them to me.newveins wrote:Are you joking or a troll?

Several of us are wondering similarly.
I think coding has changed (it's 7 years later, now), but this is something to start with.
