What code would I report for EP study to evaluate a pacemaker?
You would report 93724. This code requires the induction of arrhythmia. Report with code 93623 if other medications are evaluated. Do not report on the same day of service as the device implantation. Do not report this code for the electronic analysis of the device. Assign modifier 26 to describe the professional component of hospital-based services.
|93724||Electronic analysis of antitachycardia pacemaker system (includes electrocardiographic recording, programming of device, induction and termination of tachycardia via implanted pacemaker, and interpretation of recordings)|
