    Hello fellow coders
    code for ASC, wondering when billing cpt 36561 (Medicare) pt, will Medicare reimburse for the C1788? Has anyone had experience w/ this?
    Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    unfortunately Medicare will not reimburse for this. The C1788 has an N1 payment indicator.

    hope this helps
