Pacemaker Upgrade with LVL Placed

Please note this question was answered in 2014. The coding advice may or may not be outdated.


Patient has single chamber pacemaker with right ventricular lead who came in and was upgraded to a biventricular pacemaker with only left ventricular lead added. So no right atrium lead was added. How would you code this? I would code as a multi-lead change-out (33229) and left ventricular lead add-on (33225). Would this be correct?
