I read something on this stating medicare will only reimburse for this if it is medically necessary which usually means the dx must fall in the catigory of what they determine would be a dx in which this procedure would be covered. Which in reading sounds very limited. You must first have a dx of either 700, 701.1, or 757.39. Then you must have a second dx of either 686.9, or 729.5. On every claim which if this is the case and it is medically necessary the phys. Must document this so you can code properly. In this case if you want to get paid. Good luck.
