I have a question for someone...we performed a sling procedure on a Medicare patient and billed with 57288 but also was trying to get paid for the implant itself by using L8699. I know the L8699 has a status indicator of N1 but was wondering if anyone else had experience billing Medicare with these procedures and got paid for the implant? I work for an ASC. Any suggestions would be helpful. I have a feeling we are going to have to "eat" the amount paid out for it and I'm not sure why we scheduled it here. HELP!!
