Facility Coding for Coronary IVL (Shockwave)

Date: Mar 15, 2021

Question:

How would you recommend the facility coding for coronary IVL (Shockwave) with a drug-eluting stent? We would bill C9600 for the stent, but how can we capture the IVL? We are being told to append modifier -22 to C9600, but I thought this modifier was for professional use only.
