Lithotripsy and stent external iliac with stent of common iliac

Date: Mar 3, 2023


If a patient has a shockwave lithotripsy and stent to the external iliac and then also has angioplasty and stent of the common iliac, should this be coded with C9765 plus 37223? I am getting an edit that 37223 cannot be billed without the base code, but 37223 seems the most appropriate.
