    Hello,
    Can anybody tell me if it is correct to code for a urteral stent in an ASC as an implant and what HCPC code do you use?

    Thanks

    I looked up that code and it is an N1 and and N1 states "Indicates Packaged Procedure/item:no separate payment". So do you get reimbursed for them?
