Carotid Stenting and Diagnostic Angiograms


I was told that no diagnostic angiogram can be billed with a carotid stent. Is this true?


Not exactly! Any carotid angiograms on the ipsilateral (same) side are included in a carotid stent procedure. Medically necessary diagnostic carotid stenting on the contralateral side and vertebral angiography on either side are separately reportable.
