2nd stage surgery

Denise Posted Thu 12th of September, 2019 14:28:23 PM
This might be a separate question, but relates to the above information. My doctor did a 2nd surgery of which he did a right trapezius myocutaneous flap. Split-thickness skin graft to the donor site. Rotation of the flap. Reconstruction of the right neck. Reconstruction of soft tissue, right mandible. Release scar tissue of the tongue and reconnecting of the tongue flaps. The graft came from the right thigh and buttocks. I have come up with 15100-58, 15101-58, 13100-58,59. 15733-58, 51. ICD-10 L90.5 and Z90.09. Can you please confirm or advise.

Hi Denise,


Thanks for your question.


When we check CCI edits for these codes, code 13100 shows bundling with codes 15100 and 15733, which means this code should not be reported with these codes.


Moreover, ICD 10 codes are correct.


If you need anything else, please feel free to write to us.
