I have a question to billing of a transplant to Medicare. I received this question from one of our billers and since Transplants is not my speciality thought I'd seek help.

When doing transplant billing they typically bill 50360, 34502, 50353, 50327, 50328.

The transplant 50360 and 34502 were denied as part of the primary procedure. My mind says the 50360 is the primary procedure. The back bench work was paid. A medicare claims rep suggested attaching a 58 to the 50360, but I am not sure about this. Makes me leary.

can anyone help me with this? It would be so appreciated.
