Can hospitals get reimbursed for code G0269 -- placement of occlusive device into either a venous or arterial access site, post surgical or interventional procedure (e.g. Angio-Seal, Perclose, vascular plug)?

There is no separate Medicare reimbursement for G0269 when billed by the hospital. It is an incidental, and therefore packaged, service. However, non-Medicare payers may pay for it. Check with all of your payers before submitting a charge for these services. As always, request that this clarification be in a written format, as opposed to verbal and file accordingly.
