Given Imaging announces new reimbursement code for SmartPill procedure Given Imaging announced that effective January 1, the 2013 National Average Medicare Physician Fee allowable for its recently acquired SmartPill Wireless Motility Capsule procedure is $1,188.93. This amount differs from the previously proposed $873.28, due to avoidance of the 27% tax cut that was originally expected to go into effect in 2013. SmartPill's new Category 1 CPT code is 91112. The SmartPill procedure uses sensor-based capsule technology to measure gastric emptying, small bowel transit, colonic transit and whole gut transit times to evaluate motility disorders like gastroparesis and chronic constipation.
