    If a surgeon is doing a procedure in the ASC, is it ok to bill for the Alloderm Q4116 on the professional claim if it is not covered on the ASC claim?

    If the ASC furnishes items of implantable DME to patients, the ASC bills and receives a single payment from the local contractor for the covered surgical procedure and the implantable device, as long as the implantable device does not have pass-through status under the OPPS. When the surgical procedure is not on the ASC list, the physician bills for his or her professional services and the ASC may bill the beneficiary for the facility charges associated with the procedure.
