    Default 52353 w/ Lithoclast Probe

    AAPC: Back to School
    I was wondering if our ASC owns the Lithoclast Probe, can we bill for this also?

    If the probe is equipment, and your contracts allow additional payment for it then I guess its okay.

    I have read somewhere (probably Medicare guidelines(oh rebecca where are you)) that equipment (or majority of it) in ASC's are considered part of the facility fee (thats why you see all of the N1 payment indicators).
