NuVasive Calls an Audible?
It was reported that the quarterback at NuVasive, aka Alex Lukianov, held a team meeting on Tuesday to discuss the current "hoopla" behind reimbursement issues related to the XLIF. So the question is, "How far can you "stretch the rules" so that NuVasive employees can suggest the appropriate way to code and dictate post-op notes?" This is not the TSB's opinion, this was a question raised by an analyst. In addition, we have heard that some big users in the South have expressed their concern about not getting reimbursed and that if this situation continues they will discontinue using the product. TSB wants to know what our readers have heard in the last week?
