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 The coding advice may or may not be outdated.

Question:

I'm new to cardiology coding. If a physician performs a left heart catheterization and bilateral coronary angiography, is it acceptable to report codes 93458 and 93454? I know the left coronary angiography is inclusive with code 93458, but can we report code 93454 for the right coronary angiography?
