I'm posting this question for a co-worker of mine. She wanted to know if anyone out there was billing for Natural Orifice Translumenal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES) and/or Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication (TIF) procedures and if so, how are you billing?

I believe we need to use an unlisted code and if that is the case, if you're billing with an unlisted code, what comparable code do you give to the payer to determine reimbursement?

Any advice/guidance on this would be much appreciated.

Thank you!
