Pulmonary Artery Balloon Angioplasty Segments/Sub-Segments

Date: Sep 29, 2021

Question:

Can you please elaborate on how to code for this (92997/92998)? We are specifically wondering how many times we should code 92998 in the following scenario: successful balloon pulmonary angioplasty in two subsegmental branches of the right A5 segment, one subsegmental branch of the right A4 segment, and two subsegmental branches in the right A3 segment.

We are also wondering if selective catheterization can be coded with the intervention?
