Thread: Need Fee for Unlisted Mammosite Insertion

    Default Need Fee for Unlisted Mammosite Insertion

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can someone help me with an unlisted Mammosite Insertion Fee? The cpt code we use is 19499-is that right and how much do you charge?

    Default Mammosite

    19298 Placement of radiotherapy afterloading brachytherapy catheters (multiple tube and button type) into the breast for interstitial radioelement
    application following (at the time of or subsequent to) partial mastectomy, includes imaging guidance


    Placement of radiotherapy afterloading balloon catheter into the breast for interstitial radioelement application following partial mastectomy, includes imaging guidance; on date separate from partial mastectomy

    Good Luck

    Default Modifier On 19296?

    Would There Need To Be A 58 Modifier On The Placement Of Balloon Catheter On Date Separate From The Partial Mastectomy?

    We bill 19296 for mammosite placement. When done after a partial mastectomy you would put a 58 modifier on it.
