I'm in Indiana and our Medicare carrier has a Local Coverage Determination in place. They require certain ICD codes and they require them in a particular order. Also, just recently they deemed it necessary for all major bariatric procedures to be in-patient. You'd be smart to go to the CMS site where you can search for both NCDs and LCDs for any location in the one spot, so that you can make sure you have the data you need, and that the rules and conditions that have to be followed and/or met pre-op are all in order.
