    Smile Sling procedure in asc

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone know or have experience with the sling procedure? I am wondering if we can use cpt code 57288, and a hcpcs such as c1771 and get payment.
    Any knowledge/advise is greatly appreciated

    Default sling in ASC

    We still bill the C1771 but unfortunately Medicare and post of our payors don't pay for it. It depends on your contract states (that's what our billers tell me). I still code it.
