Stryker defers to specialty society guidelines, payer policies and guidelines, Medicare, and the AMA regarding the submission of claims and the appropriate coding for procedures and products. Reimbursement has three components, coding, coverage and payment. All three must be aligned for providers to receive reimbursement for the services they furnish. Payment rates are calculated and represent the national unadjusted payments rates. Payment to individual providers will vary based on a number of variables, including geographic location.
The entity billing Medicare and/or third-party payers is solely responsible for the accuracy of the codes assigned to the services and items in the medical record. Stryker Instruments does not, and should not, have access to medical records, and therefore cannot recommend codes for specific cases. The provider issolely responsible for reporting the codes that accurately describe the services furnished to a particular patient as well as the patient’s medical condition. It is the provider’s responsibility to determine and document that the services provided are medically necessary and that the site of service is appropriate. This information in this document is accurate as of December 2021 and all coding and reimbursement information is subject to change without notice. Please contact your Medicare Administrative Contractor or Private Payer for billing, payment and coverage information.
