    I could be crazy, but it seems I used to have a list of cpt codes that medicare allowed assistant surgeons to be billed.

    I can't find one now and it would be very beneficial to me today. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Pull up the MFSDB on the CMS website and there is a column that tells you whether assistants are allowed per CPT code.
