How would I code for bilateral adrenal gland venous sampling? May I report venography also?


Venous sampling codes 36500 and 75893 are reported once per organ sampled. In this case, you would report 36500 x 2 and 75893 x 2. Catheterization and venography are included in these codes.

36500 Venous catheterization for selective organ blood sampling
75893 Venous sampling through catheter, with or without angiography (e.g., for parathyroid hormone, renin), radiological supervision and interpretation
