Can anyway give opinion on how if anyway I can dispute the denial of a decompression fasciotomy of the anterior lower leg based on "provider not qualified to perform service" with Medicare for a podiatrist.

Have you checked with your local MAC regarding policies or coverage for this? This is a major surgical procedure so I'm not certain that a podiatrist can bill for it. Has the provider completed additional surgical training?
