2016 ECMO CPT Codes, RVUs, and MediCare Reimbursement

Ok, so we just crashed an arrested patient onto ECMO and he is going to the cath lab. Now, how do I document the procedure again?  What was the CPT for percutanous cannulation for VA-ECMO?  Does my billing company even know?

Bookmark this page for future quick reference of the current CPT codes, RVU values and MediCare reimbursements.

CMS just dramatically reduced payment for peripheral ECMO as of 10/1/2018. ELSO has responded:

Does anyone have details regarding the nature of this change?
