Coding Permanent Dual-chamber Pacemakers

Sick sinus syndrome (SSS) is a disorder of the heart’s natural pacemaker. Typically, SSS is treated with an implanted pacemaker. A pacemaker consists of a small, battery-powered generator and one or more leads. With a single-chamber system, only one lead is used. With a double-chamber system, two leads are used and placed in the right atrium and right ventricle.

ICD-10-PCS Codes: 0JH606Z, Insertion of pacemaker generation, 02H63JZ, insertion of device in atrium, and 02HK3JZ, insertion of device in ventricle

CPT Codes: 33208, insertion of new or replacement of permanent pacemaker with transvenous electrode(s); atrial and ventricular
