X modifiers with IR & CV coding

Date: Feb 14, 2023


Do you have recommendations for how the X-modifiers should be used with IR and CV? For example, would selective catheter codes get XS for separate structure? Would a true diagnostic angiogram get XU when done with an intervention? If you are switching from 59 to the X-modifiers and code IR and CV, what would be the correct way to use these? Thank you!
