Neuravive, the MR-guided focused ultrasound treatment for medication-refractory essential tremor, is a Medicare covered benefit in 38 states.

The current CPT code for MRgFUS is 0398T; Magnetic resonance image guided high intensity focused ultrasound (MRgFUS), stereotactic ablation lesion, intracranial for movement disorder including stereotactic navigation and frame placement when performed. We are providing this code for general information purposes only; each provider is responsible for its own coding and billing activities

Medicare coverage includes: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

It is our understanding that per Medicare Rules and Regulations, Medicare beneficiaries traveling outside of their home state for treatment at a facility providing MRgFUS would be subject to the Medicare contractor coverage decision based on where the treatment is performed. We recommend confirming with your local Medicare contractor prior to treatment.
