Permanent cardiac pacemakers refer to a group of self-contained, battery operated, implanted devices that send electrical stimulation to the heart through one or more implanted leads. They are often classified by the number of chambers of the heart that the devices stimulate (pulse or depolarize). Single chamber pacemakers typically target either the right atrium or right ventricle. Dual chamber pacemakers stimulate both the right atrium and the right ventricle.

The implantation procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia and requires only a brief hospitalization. A catheter is inserted into the chest and the pacemaker’s leads are threaded through the catheter to the appropriate chamber(s) of the heart. The surgeon then makes a small “pocket” in the pad of the flesh under the skin on the upper portion of the chest wall to hold the power source. The pocket is then closed with stitches.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has determined that the evidence is sufficient to conclude that implanted permanent cardiac pacemakers, single chamber or dual chamber, are reasonable and necessary for the treatment of non-reversible symptomatic bradycardia due to sinus node dysfunction and second and/or third degree atrioventricular block. Symptoms of bradycardia are symptoms that can be directly attributable to a heart rate less than 60 beats per minute (for example: syncope, seizures, congestive heart failure, dizziness, or confusion).

MEDICARE NCD FOR CARDIAC RESYNCHRONIZATION THERAPY PACEMAKERS (CRT-PS)

A cardiac resynchronization therapy pacemaker (CRT-P) utilizes biventricular pacing to coordinate the contraction of the ventricles with the intent of improving the hemodynamic status of the patient. This technology utilizes both conventional pacing technology as well as the addition of a third electrode that provides sensing and pacing capabilities in the left ventricle. At this time there is no specific NCD for CRT-Ps. However, some MACs have developed Local Coverage Determinations (LCDs) for CRT-P that apply to certain regions. It is important for medical providers to check with their local MAC for non-Medicare payer(s) to determine patient coverage and coding/billing guidelines.

MEDICARE NCD FOR INTRACARDIAC ELECTROPHYSIOLOGY AND RELATED PROCEDURES

Some cardiovascular procedures, such as pacemakers and cardioverter-defibrillators, contain very clear national coverage criteria as defined by CMS. Other procedures, such as electrophysiology studies (EPS), do not have clearly defined coverage criteria at the national level. Some MACs have developed Local Coverage Determinations (LCDs) for EPS that apply to certain regions. It is important for providers to check with their local MAC or non-Medicare payer(s) to determine patient coverage and coding/billing guidelines.

Pacemaker Implant Procedure 

The implant of a permanent pacemaker system requires the use of a pacemaker pulse generator and one electrode or lead for a single chamber system, or two electrodes or leads for a dual chamber system. The leads monitor and deliver electrical stimulation to the right atrium or right ventricle for a single chamber system, or both the right atrium and right ventricle for a dual chamber system. The lead(s) are inserted through the subclavian vein and are positioned in the right atrium and/or right ventricle. In some cases, the cephalic or internal jugular vein may be used as an alternative to the subclavian vein

A STEP-BY-STEP DESCRIPTION OF A TYPICAL INITIAL PACEMAKER SYSTEM IMPLANT PROCEDURE

1. The subclavian vein is accessed and a pulse generator pocket is formed.

2. Under fluoroscopy, the pacing lead(s) are inserted into the right atrium (33206) or right ventricle (33207) for a single chamber system, or into the right atrium and right ventricle for a dual chamber system (33208).

3. Lead measurement tests, including pacing and sensing thresholds and lead impedances, are performed.

4. The pacemaker pulse generator (included in 33206, 33207, and 33208) is connected to the lead(s) that are in place.

5. Additional testing of the lead(s) is completed.


6. The lead(s) and device are secured and the pulse generator pocket is closed.
