Is anyone doing Essure procedures in their ASC facilities? If you are, what codes are you using and how is the reimbursement?

Essure

I am doing this procedure on daily basis. Take 58565 for Essure Procedure; L8699 for the implant. V61.5 and v25.2 can be the compatabile Dx and Volume 3 should be 66.29. Anesthesia should be 00952

Thank You :)

L8699 is the correct code for implant. I am intentionally using it and never had face a denial on this.

Thank You

How would I code for the essure procedure 58565 if the physician is billing the global which he is supplying the essure device, I know I would use v25.2
but what procedure code would I use to be paid for the facility in the ASC setting?

Hi,

Just heads up on the Essure we do a lot of them and CIGNA pays the same
for this procedure no matter where it is done. They pay around 400 or so
which no where near covers the device itself. I am currently trying to find
a way to appeal. It is best to always check the payment schedules for each
different insurance company since Blue Cross and several others are doing
quite well on payment.

If anyone has any suggestions on how to get CIGNA to at least cover the
device I would appreciate it.

thanks
Pam:(
