Implants

I'm new to hospital coding. I work in a brand new specialty surgery hospital. How do I code implants? Previously, I used HCPCS codes in an ASC for implants. However, here there is a question as to whether implants are coded or simply charged out as supplies.

Please advise. :confused:

Implants usually should be coded and the HCPCS are required for some Medicare payments. The HCPCS usually are hooked to the supply charge through the charge description master file.
