My MD is wanting to place a cecostomy tube in a patient (child) in the office and have them go to radiology dept of hospital for a "spit" test to ensure proper placment. In the past we have done this in OR, but are looking to find a more cost effecient way to handle this. Our MD does not trust radiologist to place tube at this time. I have looked for a HCPCS code for the tube set itself and found A4301 and we would use 43760 to code procedure, I believe. I was wondering if anyone had handled it this way and whether that code is typically reimburseable by carriers. Any help is appreciated.
