    New Call-to-action
    Looking for help coding a Intrathecal injection of Baclofen in an ASC setting. This is just a trial at L1-2 interspace.

    62311 ?????

    Can I bill J code for ASC? This is a Medicare patient.

    Any info would be great. This is the first case like this at our ASC.

    Yes 62311 You can go to this pdf below from Medtronics and it will give coding examples

    If you purchase a Ignenix HCPCS book, next the J codes it gives the ASC payment indicators . When I looked up your J code in the HCPCS book it gave the indicator of K2, which states

    Drugs and biologicals paid separately when provided integral to a surgical procedure on the ASC list; payment based on OPPS rate.
