Please Help!!
My physician put in a defibrillator (33249) for a Medicare patient. He is getting denied for the Dx. I am unable to find a clear policy on this code. Can anyone tell me what the policy number is on this code or how to get it paid.
Any Help is appreciated!!!

I haven't needed to use these for awhile but Medicare did have a medical policy that listed the Codes that support medical necessity. I would go to Medicare web-site, under Medical Policy and search "Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator."
I hope this helps.
