Any help would be appreciated.

Claim was denied by Medicare because not medically necessary.

Dx: 296.33
CPT 64570

Post Op Diagnosis: Remove Vagus Nerve Stimulator, non functional

Patient had VNS but did not help the deep depression.
VNS was "turned off" and no longer functioning.

Patient had Breast Cancer and needs followup imaging study.
Patient requested removal of VNS

Any hints on how to resubmit for payment?
