    Red face New fee schedule for Medicare ASC

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am a little confused by the new fee schedule when it comes to the neurostim trials and IPG inserts. Do you still use the L codes for equipment or just the CPT codes. Also a little clarification on the FC modifier and the FB modifier. Thanks for any help.

    With the new medicare fee, the price of the the implant is included in the procedure fee.

    The new fee does include the supplies, so you would not bill the L code(s), just the CPT Code(s). As far as the FB and FC modifiers, they are used when the surgery center gets the implants for free or a significant reduction or credit. This is Medicare's way of trying to make sure they don't pay your center for something your center didn't pay for.
