Generator Evaluation

Please note this question was answered in 2017. The coding advice may or may not be outdated.


When a patient has electrodes changed for a pacemaker, but the generator is not changed, would it be appropriate to charge for a generator evaluation since only the leads were changed (33216 and 33235, RV lead replaced and removed)? Or would code 93280 or 93288 (evaluation) be included in the CPT codes for RV lead removal and replacement?
