If you are talking about the spacer that is placed during the mastectomy procedure, I was told by our mammosite rep that the spacer is not billable. You just bill for the main procedure (mastectomy). You bill the 19296 when the patient comes back and has the actual mammosite afterloading balloon catheter placed. Hope this helps.

Mammosite 19296

Is There A Code For Removing The Balloon Catheter Or Is This Part Of The Procedure 19296?
