I have an extremely short Trans Tib. Unfortunately, he was not successful
in a TT prosthesis and decided a trans femoral design was a better
functional design for his needs.
My question is what is the experience in this situation billing Medicare
when the amputation level (TT) is different than the L code design (Trans
femoral) from a claim submission point of view?
We have excellent documentation from the MD for the design. I’m just
inquiring if I should expect a automatic denial and plan to fight this one.
