Neurostimulators

Question:
Can we bill implantation of a trial neurostimulator (63650) with CPT code 95970 for the electronic analysis at the same time?

Answer:
Per CPT guidelines in 2019, Electronic analysis (95970) at the time of implantation is not separately reported. In addition, test stimulation to confirm correct target site placement of the electrode array(s) and/or to confirm the functional status of the system is inherent to placement and is not separately reported as electronic analysis or programming of the neurostimulator system.

*This response is based on the best information available as of 9/5/19.
