Medicaid "Cornea Transplant"

    Default Medicaid "Cornea Transplant"
    Medical Coding Books
    I know medicaid covers CPT 65730 but not the V2785...but our doctor is insisting that efective Jan 1, 2009, Medicare approved a procedure that bundles both and which reimbursement is higher and that it should also apply to Medicaid. I haven't heard nor read anything regarding this...any feedback on this!!

    unfortunately, just because Medicare may have done this does not mean that Medicaid does things the same way. Medicare is Federal, Medicaid is State. Two seperate worlds.

    ok, what it the patient pays for for the corneal transplant itself, the tissue that is, can we still bill for the procedure, not the tissue ?
