    Question Surgical Trays

    AAPC: Back to School
    I want to know if any of you out there are getting paid for surgical trays. I never get paid for them they are always denied as part of the procedure. should I even be billing to them or should I be billing differently. Any advice on this would be great. I am currently using A4550. This is usually for a toenail removal or a laceration etc.
    Thanks for your advice.

    Default surgical tray

    The cost of supplies are usually included in the procedure. Only unusual or excessive supplies should be billed.

    Back in 2004 I think the surgical trays went global to the procedure.
