IMHO, no CPT code(s) exist that would describe this/these procedures.

Performing only as part of a research protocol (a pilot project with no charge to subjects or third party payors).  Furthermore, we are not providing the results or any interpretation of the results to patients or their physicians.

Clinically, this is clearly still in the investigational phase, by definition meaning that it is not medically necessary and thus not covered under the SSA.

Good morning,


I recall the previous conversation during the end of last year regarding 
CCSVI.  What CPT code is being used utilized?  And for those performing the 
studies, have you had any issues regarding reimbursement for the duplex?

Thank you,
Sharla
