Hey everyone,
I was wondering if anyone knows what codes to use for an On-Q pain pump that is inserted into the abdomen (for the incisional pain) or the rectal/anal area for p/o pain mgmt? I would love any suggestions.

On-Q Pain Pump

Hi, my experience has been that there is no reimbursement for this service. There is no CPT code and if anyone else has different information I would appreciate the learning experience. I don't think that even anesthesia practices are reimbursed as this is a facility charge.

ON Q Pain Pump

I sometimes get reimbursed from some of the commercials for procedures of feet/ankle with 28899. I send notes and write on line 19 28899 is cath placement for ON Q Pain Pump. Look for an unlisted code for your body area and you can try. Don't bother with Medicare, Medicaid they won't reimburse. Good Luck!
