Can mitral valvuloplasty (92987) be billed with the transseptal puncture code (93462)?
|92987||Percutaneous balloon valvuloplasty; mitral valve|
|+93462||Left heart catheterization by transseptal puncture through intact septum or by transapical puncture (List separately in addition to code for primary procedure)|
Code 93462 is an add-on code that has a list of primary codes that it may be billed with, and 92987 is not on that list. Therefore, the two codes may not be billed together for the same procedure.
