Our Neurosurgeon did a 62223 and used stereotactic navigation 61781 and the microscope is the payable? Medicare says the 61781 is for reporting purposes on the ERA.
Thank you

My experience is that Medicare has a range of CPT codes that they allow the stealth to be reimbursed with. 62223 is not one of them. Private payers may pay but Medicare doesn't
