The neurosurgeon's coder and our general surgery coder cannot agree on which is the appropriate code for a VP shunt placement. We want to be compliant for CMS, but how can we get the CMS guideline on this code?
re: VP shunt placement coding
62223 Creation of shunt; ventriculo-peritoneal, -pleural, other terminus
Is there a CMS site to verify this? Sorry, but you did not list your credentials, so could you include them?
