    Hello

    Has anyone ever heard of getting different reimbursements on the same CPT because of use a different ICD9.

    The amount of reimbursement for a given CPT is not guided by ICD-9, but whether a given CPT is reimbursed can depend on whether the ICD-9 conveys the accepted medical necessity for that procedure.
