March 5th, 2015 : Important Update: Two new drug coated balloon (angioplasty)
devices have been recently approved by the FDA: Lutonix Drug Coated Balloon (Bard product) and the In.Pact Admiral
Drug Coated Balloon Catheter (Medtronic). Effective April 1st, CMS will allow a pass-through payment for these
devices. The HCPCS code for these catheters is C2623 (Catheter, transluminal angioplasty, drug coated, non-laser).
If you are using or plan to use either of these balloon catheters, please make sure you have a charge code set up
for these items and that HCPCS code C2623 is attached for accurate billing by March 31, 2015.
If you are a PIIMS inventory management system customer, these devices in your inventory will be automatically updated
to report C2623. However, all Bard Lutonix and Medtronic IN.PACT Admiral balloons will require you to create a charge
code with supply code C2623 in order to bill properly for the pass-through payment.
