This course will focus on identifying the appropriate code in the Cardiovascular System subsection within the Surgery section of the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code set and correctly applying the coding guidelines and instructions for transcatheter procedures using case studies and scenarios. A current copy of the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT), Professional Edition is strongly recommended to optimize your understanding of the content covered.Important Note Use of the term "physician" throughout this lesson is not intended to indicate that other qualified health care professionals (QHPs) or individual entities (such as a hospital or home health agency) may not report the service.
