Can we get covered for laser surgery in outside of nursing home facility? Can also the facility(ASC) get covered from medicare part B?

Payers may consider laser destruction cosmetic, in many cases. You should check the rules from your frequent payers to determine what conditions they cover for laser.

Bill According to Payer Policy

There is a range of payment policies on laser procedures from Medicare carriers, and most of the patients who need this procedure are Medicare patients only.
