I'm wondering if anyone else has heard about the new way Medicare is wanting Stims to be billed. Our rep from St. Jude said as of January 1, 2014 medicare will no longer accept the
L8680 code and all we will be included in the CPT code 63650, however the reimbursement will take a HUGE nose dive from like $8,000-$10,000 to $1,900 to $2,500 when done here in our office. He also told us that, unlike before, if the procedure is done at a surgical center the reimbursement is almost double that of what we are reimbursed when the procedure is done at our office. The surgical center said that they would be billing the procedure code and we wouldn't anymore. I didn't think that made sense and all this change to Stims is overwhelming. Does anyone have any good information or a place where I can get it? Have other reps been telling you about the new way to bill? Any information, insight, advice, etc... would be a huge help and very much appreciated!! Thanks
