Usually the primary dx is the reason that they got the pacemaker:  irregular heartbeat....etc.  Then the V code is secondary dx.

Thank you for your reply.

I found that Ohana paid for CPT 93289/Dx V45.01 before, I will call them to request reprocessing.

Patient has DX 425.4, 428.22, 458.1 go with CPT 99213/M25 and claim was paid.
