Generator Change and New Lead Removal Replacement Same Date
A dual chamber pacemaker generator was removed and replaced with a new dual chamber generator. The two leads were reused. Later in the day the patient returned, and the RV lead was explanted and a new RV lead inserted. We charged 33228 for first procedure and 33216, 33234 for the second. But we received a Charge Correction for these CPTs stating they could not be charged same day. Coder suggestion 33207, 33233, 33235? Do you agree?
