    Default Implant code ?21390

    Hello ASC coders ,

    I think the ASC where I work at may have to eat this cost. First let me say this is a MEDICAID insurance.

    Doc did A procedure of OPEN REDUCTION of RIGHT ORBITAL fRACTURE with ALLOPLASTIC IMPLANT . cpt code 21390 is the code. Now it states in THE CPT code book
    WITH IMPLANT . So I code it as 21390 rt with dx code 802.6.
    They also have an invoice attached to it stating how much for the implant -$1949.00
    Again this is a MEDICAID ONLY
    IS there A certain implant code I can use also. Idont think i can, maybe I am over looking something. I know Medicare ONLY PAYS 1721.88 ON THIS procedure , and correct me if I'am AM wrong, I dont see MEDICAID paying close to this amount.
    ANY suggestions please .
    and wHAT IF WAS blue cross -?
