    Default Billing Hardware for ASC?
    Yeppers. I agree with MBort. My ASC gets paid for implants with exception of Mediare/Medicaid.

    Well I told my supervisor about we need to update our contracts , we hardly get paid on some implants , I was told to just code it , send it to the billers, and let management worry about the rest. Sounds like I am complaing but I dont think my sup ervisor understands the loss they are taking. :

    Well Trent, you did your part by "enlightening" those with the power to do something. Sucks to be told to "be quite & do your job".

    Thanks to everyone for all of the help!! We now have someone else handling our contract negotiations and aren't having any trouble getting the carve outs to get paid for the implants we use. Hooray!
