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.
