37244 hemarthrosis

Date: Jan 9, 2023


Can you please provide the documentation to support that 37244 must be for acute active hemorrhage? We have an outpatient report for embolization of hemarthrosis. Is a planned outpatient embolization for this indication coded as 37242 or 37244? We have a dispute over documentation that it must be acute bleed indication, which we do not see supported in the CPT Codebook.
