The treatments or conditions mentioned on this website are not considered to be standard of care for any condition or disease. None of the regulatory statements have been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Codes and values are subject to frequent change without notice. Any entity billing Medicare and/or third-party payors is solely responsible for the accuracy of the codes assigned to the services or items in the medical record.

When making coding decisions, we encourage you to seek input from The American Medical Association (AMA), relevant medical societies, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), your local Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) and other health plans to which you submit claims. Items and services that are billed to payors must be medically necessary and supported by appropriate documentation. It is important to remember that while a code may exist describing certain procedures and/or technologies, it does not guarantee payment by payors.
