    Default Adjustable Gastric Band Fill S2083

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anybody know a code that Medicare will pay on adjustable gastric band fill? They of course deny the S2083 that some private payers cover.

    Would you use an unlisted procedure?

    Any suggestions?

    I appreciate any response
