Default 19298--hcpcs code c9726 getting paid?

HI all!!!

I need some input/feedback....I'm coding for breast cancer radiation of a SAVI brachytherapy catheter placement (cpt 19298) performed along with a catheter kit was also used during the placement. I was wondering if the supply code, C9726 is getting paid. My physician is not yet contracted with any insurances and we are attempting the coding/billing of the HCPCS code as a trial but we don't know if it's payable or not. If it gets denied, I wasn't sure if I should appeal it. Don't want to waste time appealing if it's not payable and don't want to not appeal if it's a wrong denial, meaning it is payable!!

Thanks for all your help!!
