In Reply to: Re: Medicare will pay for STN surgery in Kansas posted by Googy on September 19, 2000 at 17:02:55:

: : After receiving a lot of misinformation, especially from the medicare reps. they finally agreed it was payable. If you call medicare about the surgery in other states being covered, give them the following billing code numbers: 332.0, 61885, and 61862. If you don't give them these numbers, they will give you the wrong answer. I actually found three different opinions on the internet about the coverage. One was an AMA site and the other two (both incorrect) came from medicare or government related site. I still can't believe all of this was necessary. Bruce

: Bruce no wonder the medical is going down the drain.This shouldn't have happened.Nothing is easy.Jennifer should've known that it is approved by Medicare she works for KU.Hang in there Bruce,

: Googy
Bruce, thanks for the billing code numbers. Those will prove invaluable to many others. Lory
