Ask a Rev Cycle Expert: Reporting for C9772?

Question:

Our coding staff is attempting to report C9772 for both Hospital and Professional components. Is this correct?

Answer:

Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) C-codes, such as C9772 Revascularization, endovascular, open or percutaneous, tibial/peroneal artery(ies), with intravascular lithotripsy, includes angioplasty within the same vessel (s), when performed are only for use by facilities, and are not for use for reporting professional services. Professional services would be reported with the appropriate Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) code(s).
