    Did you ever get an answer on this? One of my physician's just asked this same question

    I would think you'd have to submit an unlisted procedure code?

    Unlisted code, get fee from nearest reporting procedure code and times 20% of that code. 44238

    We went with the unlisted 44238 CPT. We have not been paid yet, denied for no pre-authorization which we have appealed. The preauthorization gals had given different codes when they pre-cert'ed originally & were told no authorization needed. Sure it'll be a fight, but hopefully we can get them to process.
