For example, what can be billed in addition to the bariatric procedure? Is hernia repair separately reported? And if so, with which codes, and will a modifier be necessary? Equally as important is understanding coverage policies. Medicare has a national coverage policy that is implemented at the discretion of local Medicare carriers. Private payors have their own coverage criteria that must be met before reimbursement will be authorized. Bariatric surgeons must be familiar with payor-specific policies, and ensure that all patients comply with requirements.
