Operating Microscope 69990

Hi All,

Happy Monday, I think.

1. I see that 69990 can only be used Per CMS: 69990 may be paid separately only when submitted with CPT codes - 61304-61546, 61550-61711, 62010-62100, 63081-63308, 63704-63710, 64831, 64834-64836, 64840-64858, 64861-64871, 64885-64891, 64905-64907.

2. Most carriers follow CMS or are payer specific.
My question is, if the microsurgery is documented, can you force that charge through?
Thank you,
