    Default Pain Buster's

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello, I am wondering if anyone has a surgeon that wants to code for the placment of pain buster's after VAT or thoracotomy. It has been awhile since this was a issue but I now have a surgeon that wants us to code for them. I have some old information that states "included in" but would like something current but not able to find anything. So I thought that, maybe, someone may know where this information could be found!

    Thank you in Advance!
