Question to Healthcare Fraud Shield

Can a provider can bill multiple units of CPT 75898 (Angiography through existing catheter for follow-up study for transcatheter therapy, embolization or infusion, other than for thrombolysis)[1]?

Dear Healthcare Fraud Shield Reader:

Answer:
The MUE limit on CPT 75898 is 1. To be able to bill multiple units, the provider would need to perform separate follow up studies. In addition, I would also expect you would see the -76 modifier attached.
