Endoscopic mucosal resection

Tammy Posted Tue 27th of January, 2015 18:19:24 PM

Why is there no RVU listed for CPT 45390 'endoscopic mucosal resection'? Is this not a payable code by Medicare or other payors?

These codes with zero RVU are for items and/or services that CMS chose to exclude from the fee schedule payment by regulation. No RVUs or payment amounts are shown and no payment may be made under the fee schedule for these codes. Payment for them, when covered, continues under reasonable charge procedures. Payment is based on payers discretion. Thanks !!
