IVUS /cardiac cath performed by different physicians- facility billing

Date: Jun 18, 2021

Question:

How would you code for a facility when an intravascular ultrasound of a coronary artery is performed by one physician and then another physician performs the cardiac cath? We’ve reviewed CPT Assistant, December 2013 (page 18, Frequently Asked Questions), with add-on code 92978 and wondered if the guidance for to use the unlisted CPT code 93799 more for the professional side of billing or should be used both for professional and facility billing?
