Dr. Z, We have a question pertaining to charging of supplies. During an EP case a lead was implanted, and due patient's anatomy did not fit well and the lead was explanted. Can we charge for the lead? We were always told that if the went into the patient's body, we are supposed to charge, but since we extracted the lead, I am not sure. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.
