It depends - is this service defined in the PA's scope of services? if your state approved it - you could use that to appeal the claim. (sometimes even though it's state approved, Medicare might not honor it, but worth a shot)
As long as the PA has the specialized training to perform the procedure, as defined in the scope of services, you should be ok.
Your PA has his/her own Medicare PTAN, right? What exactly did your denial say? Did you check your LCD's w/ your contractor?
