I am a little confused by the new fee schedule when it comes to the neurostim trials and IPG inserts. Do you still use the L codes for equipment or just the CPT codes. Also a little clarification on the FC modifier and the FB modifier. Thanks for any help.

The new fee does include the supplies, so you would not bill the L code(s), just the CPT Code(s). As far as the FB and FC modifiers, they are used when the surgery center gets the implants for free or a significant reduction or credit. This is Medicare's way of trying to make sure they don't pay your center for something your center didn't pay for.
