yes with the TC modifier. Keep in mind..Medicare does not allow for payment as this has a payment indicator of N1. You should check your carrier contracts to see which carriers allow for the revenue code. I have some centers that failed to negotiate the revenue code therefore they can not get paid, but many others do.

(you will also find supporting documentation in the AAPC ASC study guide)

are you speaking of the antibiotic beads? If so, then 11981.

If not, I've never heard of osteo beads, could you please give more info.

If the ASC purchased them, then I would code them out with L8699 (and attach the invoice per most carrier requirements).
