The surgeon used a stent and then inserted an embolization coil for an aneurysm. Are both billable?
If the stent is placed to provide a latticework for deployment of the embolism coil, then no. You would just bill for the embolization. If the stent itself is the sole definitive procedure to treat the aneurysm , then only the stent should be billed.
