    Default Fiducials - We have a general surgeon who will be placing pancreatic fiducials
    Medical Coding Books
    We have a general surgeon who will be placing pancreatic fiducials (I believe laproscopically) in the OR prior to cyber knife. Does anyone have any information on coding/billing and or insurance reimbursement on these procedures? I have been checking our carrier's websites but have been unable to pull up any info. The surgeon's secretary believes we should use the CPT code 48999. Any insight or documentation would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you!
