CPT coding for Interventional Radiology (IR) services has always been viewed as one of the more complex services lines to master, let alone understand! Component coding, complete procedure coding “hybrid” bundled coding—all techniques and options are in play. As a professional responsible for assigning the CPT codes for these services, what are best practices? Pitfalls? How should documentation be structured? Can all services be assigned at the same encounter for the same patient? Who modifies these claims? Where are the “rules” governing modifier assignment?
