    Default Insertion Spinal Neurostimulator

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am looking for any information about coding stimulator for Medicare. I am getting denied on octrode code as duplicate. I use a 59 modifier on second octrode code and they pay that but not the first code?

    63650- 51
    63650- 59

    Have you tried taking the 51 off the first 63650? We was reimbursed for the same codes, but did not use the 51, just the 59 on the second 63650.
