    If you are talking about the spacer that is placed during the mastectomy procedure, I was told by our mammosite rep that the spacer is not billable. You just bill for the main procedure (mastectomy). You bill the 19296 when the patient comes back and has the actual mammosite afterloading balloon catheter placed. Hope this helps.
