Thread: 63650 lead trial placement

  1. #11

    Default L8680 1 Lead with 8 electrodes

    AAPC: Back to School
    Good Morning,

    I am researching the correct way to bill for the L8680 for our pain clinic. The doctor is implanting 1 lead array with 8 electrodes or contact points. I have seen on different threads two different ideas of how to bill for this device. One is that I would bill per electrode in my case would be 8 units and the other is bill per array which would be 1 unit. During my research with website searches appears that this could have been an issue that the manufacturer disputed billing per array and the decision to bill per electrode/contact point was decided. Can anyone verify what is correct currently per electrode or per array? Thanks for any guideance we definitely appreciate

    As mentioned in another post in this thread if you are billing for the supply and the procedure , bill per electrode with the L code to represent total number of electodes. Also bill 63650 for placement and bill per array/lead placed.
