MitraClip and Accucinch Implants

May 18, 2017

Question:

I'm using CPT 33418 for both Mitraclip and Accucinch implants; is this correct? Also, in some cases an interventional cardiologist and a cardiothoracic surgeon perform this procedure, would it be appropriate to bill one of them as an assist? In some cases, an interventional cardiologist and a cardiologist perform the px; is it also appropriate to bill one of them as an assist? Are these a part of a registry to where I need to bill these with Q0 mod and Z00.6 dx? I know these are a lot of questions concerning this px. I'm confused by the limited information I was able to find and will appreciate any information you can provide.
