Update on convergent or hybrid cardiac ablation?

Date: Dec 12, 2019

Question:

A question about how to code for hybrid approach EP ablations was asked back in 2017 (question ID 8968). Recommendation was to use an unlisted code for this investigational procedure, and to check with specific payers. Also, use 93656 for A-fib ablation if done at separate encounters. Are there any more current recommendations on how to code these procedures now (2019/2020) from Dr. Z?
