Thread: Assistant Surgeon Pd on Partial Mastectomy?

    Default Assistant Surgeon Pd on Partial Mastectomy?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is anyone getting reimbursed for a surgeon assisting on a partial mastectomy - CPT 19301-80? I am new to a general surgery practice that has historically billed for a surgeon assist, but it looks like neither Medicare nor private carriers are reimbursing of late (at least, not without supporting documentation). Input and/or advice will be greatly appreciated!!!

    according to the medicare rbrvs book, 19301 cannot be billed with an 80 modifier.
