|2401||Coronary pressure derived fractional flow reserve (Coronary FFR) per coronary vessel, add||$120.85|
Example 1: A patient undergoes selective coronary artery arteriography with both left and right heart catheterization AND intracoronary ultrasound.
Tariff 2327 ($530.15) and tariff 2397 ($122.05) should be claimed, for a total fee of $652.20.
Example 2: A patient underundergoes a left heart catheterization with selective coronary artery arteriography. Coronary FFR measurements are then taken on two coronary vessels and, as a result, a coronary angioplasty with stent insertion is immediately performed on one of the coronary vessels.
