Question:

What code should be reported when only venous grafting is performed?

Answer:

When a coronary artery bypass procedure is performed, the most comprehensive code describing the procedure should be reported. When venous grafting only is performed, only one code in the range of coronary artery bypass CPT® codes 33510–33516 may be reported. No other bypass codes should be reported with these codes.
