Hear from the experts on implementing the new TPT payment for single-use duodenoscopes

Wednesday, September 30th, 2020 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am CT

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has approved Boston Scientific’s application for a transitional pass-through (TPT) payment category to describe single-use endoscopes, such as the EXALT™ Model D Single-Use Duodenoscope.

Effective July 1, 2020, the new device pass-through code (C1748) may be used to bill for single-use duodenoscopes when used to treat Medicare patients in the hospital outpatient setting. This device specific payment is in addition to the endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) procedure payment.

Join Dr. John McInnes, Dr. Stuart Sherman and Dr. Mark Gromski as they discuss the trend towards single-use duodenoscopes and this new payment including information on reporting for EXALT Model D and submitting claims for payment.

This webinar will discuss:

  • Transmission of infection through duodenoscopes
  • Single-use scopes as a potential solution
  • Transitional Pass-through Payment Category
